Royal Society Africa Prize For Research Scientists 2024 – Apply Now

Are you a research scientist based in Africa who is making an innovative contribution to the sciences? If so, you might be interested in the Royal Society Africa Prize, which is awarded annually to recognize outstanding contributions to capacity building in Africa. The prize is open to African citizens and is intended for researchers at a senior stage of their research career with the potential to build a research project to follow on from the prize.


The Royal Society Africa Prize comes with a grant of £15,000 for a research project and £2,000 as a personal prize for the recipient. The prize also includes a specially struck commemorative medal, and the recipient is expected to deliver a Prize Lecture on the evening of the awarding ceremony. The research must be based in Africa, and the nominee should be linked with an African centre of excellence, which would normally be a university or equivalent research centre.


Nominations for the Royal Society Africa Prize are open now and will remain valid and considered by the award selection committee throughout three nomination cycles. The deadline for applications is February 23, 2024. If you are interested and qualified, you can apply on the Royal Society website at Don’t miss this opportunity to be recognized for your innovative contributions to the sciences and capacity building in Africa!
