For African Researchers



Depending on the funds that we are able to raise, we provide a range of funding opportunities for Sub-Saharan African health researchers.

If you are interested in applying to the Africa Research Excellence Fund, or you are currently funded by us, you may want to know a little more about what we do and how we decide who to support.

If you are an active scientist with 5 – 10 years postdoctoral research experience relevant to Africa’s human health challenges, you might be interested in helping AREF by joining our College of Experts to assist with the peer review process.

If you have any enquiries about our Awards, Academy, or peer-review, you can fill out our online form, email, or telephone Sulayman Janneh on +220 4495442.
