About the Award: AfOx Travel Grants support the establishment of new collaborations between researchers in African countries and their collaborators at the University of Oxford. Travel Grants are open to all disciplines and open all year round. So far we have awarded 200 travel grants to researchers from the African continent and the University of Oxford.
Eligibility: If you are a researcher in any higher institutions in Africa and have any interest in running a collaborative work in the UK, then you are qualified for this grant.
If applicable, please indicate how your project addresses a particular challenge linked to the Sustainable Development Goals. The travel award may cover more than two people and additional individuals should be named under ‘Purpose of the Grant’. The overarching aim of the scheme is to foster the development of new collaborations and the scheme is not intended to be used as alternative support for already established collaborations.
