Description

The British Ecology Society recognizes that ecologists in Africa face unique challenges in carrying out research; the grant is designed to support applicants to develop their skills, experience and knowledge base as well as making connections with ecologists in the developed world. 

The maximum value of a grant is £8,000 for research. An additional sum up to £2,000 may be requested to fund travel to help you develop connections with other ecologists outside your usual peer group. 

Criteria for the grant are, among others:

  • Be a scientist and a citizen of a country in Africa or its associated islands, that is a ‘low-income economy’ or ‘lower-middle-income economy’ according to the World Bank categorization;
  • Have at least an M.Sc. or equivalent degree;
  • Be working for a university or research institution in Africa (including field centers, NGOs, museums etc.) that provides basic research facilities;
  • Carry out the research in a country in Africa or its associated islands.
