Science and Language Mobility Scheme Africa 2018
The Science and Language Mobility Scheme Africa is a five-year programme that funds researchers from Anglo and Francophone Africa to undertake scientific research in language regions other than their own. The programme seeks to build language skills and cultural capabilities of researchers as they undertake their projects, a strategy towards addressing one of the barriers to intra- Africa scientific collaboration.
The award will cover directly incurred costs up to $20,000 for durations of up to 6 months. This is to cover the applicant’s visa fees, airfare (Economy class), subsistence whilst on the visit, language training costs for up to $2000 and research costs.
- Be a citizen of an African country
