AfOx Visiting Fellowship Programme

Providing opportunities for multidisciplinary collaborations

AfOx Fellowship

The AfOx Visiting Fellowship Programme is designed to allow exceptional African researchers to build international networks and focus on a project of their choice in collaboration with Oxford-based scholars. The Fellowship is open to researchers across all academic fields. Fellows will be affiliated with the University of Oxford for 12 months,  including ten months of virtual engagement and a two month in-person visit to Oxford during Trinity Term. To apply for a fellowship,  all applicants must have an Oxford-based researcher named as their collaborator on their application.

Further information for applicants and Oxford researchers can be found in our guide for fellowship applicants and guide for fellowship applicants, and our guide for collaborators.

AfOx fellowships are open to all disciplines across all the University departments. We encourage applications across the full range of academic disciplines and to work with any researcher based at the University of Oxford.

During the Fellowship, AfOx Fellows are associated with a Department and a College within the University. Fellows can apply to work with scholars based in any of the University’s departments. AfOx is a cross-university platform which supports collaboration across all the departments at Oxford University. Learn more about the Collegiate University system at Oxford here.

We welcome applications from all academic disciplines and encourage applications from female and underrepresented researchers.

AfOx Fellows will be asked to select which of the AfOx research themes, Healthy People, Innovation for Prosperity, Integrated Societies and Green Futures, their project most closely aligns with.

All AfOx fellowship applications are made through the same process using the same application portal. Applications close at midnight -UTC- June 9th 2023.
