About the Funding

Apply for funding to support exceptional early to mid-career African researchers to conduct excellent global health research across sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).

Researchers should be supported by an enthusiastic local research environment and by a UK-based partner as part of a partnership between the African and UK institutions.

We aim to attract and retain exceptionally talented ‘rising star’ individuals who will lead high quality research on key global health issues pertinent to SSA.

Awards will provide support for up to five years and the requested amount should not exceed £750,000 in total.

This opportunity will be run on the UKRI Funding Service so please ensure that your organisation is registered. You can do this by contacting support [at] funding-service [dot] ukri [dot] org and provide your organisation name, country and city.
