The Malawi Scholarship Program (MSP) is a seven-year initiative designed to build the capacity of Malawi’s health service delivery and management sector. Since the program's inception, the program has supported training at the master’s level in the U.S. and the third countries for Malawi health professionals in public health, human nutrition, and family planning and reproductive health to upgrade their technical and professional knowledge at US and African universities.

The project was expanded to include long-term academic training in Malawi for nearly 800 students at various levels including certificate programs, diploma programs, bachelor’s degrees, and master’s degrees.

For all elements of MSP—US, third-country, and in-country—World Learning, through our Washington, DC and Lilongwe offices, arranges university placements; monitors and evaluates students and programs; oversees program finances; implements post-training follow-on activities for program graduates in conjunction with USAID and its U.S. subcontractor, International Leadership Center; facilitates networks of alumni support; and ensures compliance with funder policies.

The project is funded by the US Agency for International Development as a task order under the Focus on Results: Enhancing Capacity across Sectors in Transition II-Participant Training contract (FORECAST II-PT).
