Research Project

The University has just concluded an agreement to access the Research Africa’s funding opportunities database.

Staff members and students will be able to access the sorted and sieved funding opportunities that are available and receive alerts based on individual disciplines and the type of grants that are of interest and each member via e-mail. Access to this platform should be a valuable tool to grow our research.

Research Professional Africa is an essential online resource for researchers, students, research and innovation managers, development officers and policymakers in Africa. It provides subscribers access to comprehensive, authoritative and appropriately highlighted information of over 40,000 research funding opportunities globally to enable sustained research for African development. In addition, an African staffed newsroom covers the African science, policy and research funding news relevant to Research Africa readers. The Research Africa platform provides access to funding opportunities, news and analyses on topics chosen to give African researchers, students and policymakers an edge in the competition for research funding.
