Fully-funded NORDIC African Scholarship Programme 2024

The African Scholarship Programme offered by the Nordic Africa Institute in Uppsala presents a remarkable opportunity for early career researchers in Africa to advance their studies in the fields of Social Sciences and Humanities. This initiative aims to support researchers based in Africa by providing them with the resources to further develop their ongoing research at the Nordic Africa Institute.


Eligible candidates for this fully-funded scholarship opportunity include full-time staff employed by African universities or research centers enrolled in a doctoral program in the African region, postdoctoral researchers within five years of completing their PhD, and early career researchers engaged in Africa-oriented research within the disciplines of Social Sciences and Humanities. The research projects should align with the core principles of the UN Agenda 2030, focusing on contemporary Africa and the five impact areas of the Institute.


The benefits of the NORDIC African Scholarship Programme encompass a return airfare, accommodation, a daily subsistence allowance, an installation grant, and access to workspace facilities at the Institute in Uppsala. Interested applicants can apply online by submitting required documents such as a CV, research project outline, work plan, and a letter of support from their Head of Department. The deadline for applications is April 10, 2024. For more information and to apply, visit the official website of the Nordic Africa Institute.
