The laureates of the Small Grants Programme enjoy a training session in the form of regional methodology workshops for graduate students. These workshops are designed to equip the younger generation of researchers involved with the latest research tools and materials which they need for their research. They also provide an opportunity for the laureates to tap into the experience of proven researchers in their fields from within and beyond the continent. The interaction which this programme offers older and younger scholars not only promotes a structured system of ‘mentoring’ but also encourages an inter-generational and multidisciplinary dialogue. As an off-shoot of this programme, CODESRIA, for a period of time, organised a separate Summer School in Quantitative Methods which attracted the participation of young postgraduate students. The Summer School was phased out in 2002 and its curriculum integrated into the regular methodological workshops held for winners of the grants awarded for thesis writing.
