Eligibility

The lead institution of each successful H3Africa collaborative project must be based in Africa. Institutions may be required to provide the following additional information at the preliminary application stage, to enable us to assess their eligibility to receive funding:

  • A statement of support from the head of the administering institution, explaining the mission of the institution and indicating how the proposal fits within the context of its strategic vision.
  • Details of the main source(s) of funding and a description of the institution’s legal status, and whether it is able to enter into legal agreements in its own name and on its own account.

Awards will be made to the lead institution. We expect the Principal Investigator to be based at the lead institution for the duration of the grant and to be responsible for leading the overall management of the grant. 

Strong collaborations between institutional partners within African countries are encouraged, as are collaborations with institutional partners outside the African continent who are able to contribute additional skills, resources, supervision, and mentorship as required.

Applications must be submitted in English.
