The Fellowship Programme plays a major role in UICC's mission. Alongside other capacity building offers, it aims to reduce the global cancer burden by facilitating the exchange of knowledge, expertise and technical skills. The programme also enables networking and collaboration across institutions and countries.
UICC fellows come from around the globe and work in all areas of cancer control. The fellowships allow them to visit world-renowned institutions in order to learn best practices and new skills.

Les Bourses pour l’Afrique Francophone sont des bourses d’un mois spécifiquement destinées aux personnels de santé et autres professionnels travaillant dans le domaine du cancer et basés en Afrique francophone.
