Support us



Thank you for considering contributing to the Africa Research Excellence Fund. Your support will help to grow and strengthen the medical research community in Africa by investing in the next generation of talented, early-career African health researchers.

A donation of £5,000 will enable a potential medical research leader to take part in a workshop to gain the relevant skills and knowledge to accelerate learning.

A donation of £50,000 will enable a medical researcher to complete a placement through our competitive Fellowship Awards Programme, developing their research ideas, skills and collaborations.

A donation of £100,000 will contribute to the Seed Fund programme, providing the resources and capacity to empower three potential world-class researchers to accelerate their careers in Africa, for Africa.

Your gift will be the water at the roots of the tree that bears education as its fruit. Your sacrifice will be to ensure access – into perpetuity – via the door through which generation after generation of Africa’s children will walk a brighter future for themselves, their families, their society and ultimately this continent.
