German Institute of Global and Area Studies (GIGA) is now offering the UFS/AS Young African Scholar Award. These awards are open to postgraduate students nearing completion of their Ph.D. theses and postdoctoral scholars within five years of having been awarded their Ph.D.
Scholarship in African Studies still faces the challenge of capacity building to enhance ownership by authors and institutions from and on the African continent. This award seeks to strengthen efforts to further promote internationally recognized African scholarship in African Studies.
