African Guest Researchers’ Scholarship Programme 2024

Updated: Mar 27, 2023


The purpose of the African Guest Researchers’ Scholarship Programme is to provide opportunities for early career researchers based in Africa to work and develop their ongoing research at the Nordic Africa Institute. It could be a great opportunity for several communities. The African Guest Researchers’ scholarship program is going to begin soon. They will offer different types of funding to the selected applicants. The scholarship offers access to the Institute’s library, hosted by the Institute’s researchers, networking opportunities, and other resources that provide a stimulating research environment. Through the program, the Nordic Africa Institute aims to contribute to building capacity in the production of knowledge about Africa and to promote and establish relations with and between African and Nordic research communities.
