The Cambridge-Africa ALBORADA Research Fund was established in 2012, with generous support from The ALBORADA Trust. The Fund supports pairs of researchers (post-doctoral level and above) from the University of Cambridge (or an affiliated institution such as the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, NIAB, and British Antarctic Survey) and sub-Saharan African institutions, across all disciplines, to initiate and/or strengthen research collaborations.
The Cambridge-Africa ALBORADA Research Fund competitively awards grants are for:
Research costs (such as reagents, fieldwork, and equipment)
Research-related travel between Cambridge and Africa (bearing in mind the feasibility of travel due to COVID restrictions)
Conducting research training activities in Africa (e.g. setting up courses/workshops).
Grant size: £1,000 – £20,000
Deadline: September 5, 2022
