AfOx Travel Grants
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.
The duration of the travel grant can be between 1 to 8 weeks, and grants can be applied for a maximum of £5000. Applications for a travel grant must be made jointly between academics or researchers based in Africa at either an academic and non-academic institution and academics or researchers at the University of Oxford. Search our researcher database to find a collaborator.
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.
The application will be reviewed and applicants will receive feedback on the outcome
The Travel Grant can be used to cover costs of travel (in either direction i.e. University of Oxford, UK to an institution in Africa or vice versa), accommodation and incidental expenses to a maximum of £5000
Administration of the award will be the responsibility of the home department of the Oxford applicant including visa, travel and other financial expenditure.
Applicants will be required to submit a brief report within one year of the award to give details of outputs arising from the collaborative visit using this link.
