Digging Deep@ Securing Grants for Africa-focused Research and Engagement

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesSymposium


This webinar addresses the challenges African researchers encounter in securing competitive funding, publishing in top journals, and effectively engaging with key stakeholders for impact. Researchers face obstacles such as the daunting application process, uncertainty about their research fitting grant requirements, and limited understanding of grant-securing norms. Addressing these factors is crucial, as grants are essential for scholars to engage with stakeholders and publish in reputable journals.
Our speakers will address the theme within the context of their personal experiences and discuss opportunities that researchers can explore, including the ‘how-to’ on securing grants and succeeding as an academic.
