AREF Canva

The Africa Research Excellence Fund (AREF) was established by Professor Tumani Corrah in 2015 to support the new generation of African researchers.

Our Research Development Fellowships provide early-career African researchers with experience of state-of-the-art research methodologies in world-class research environments to help them build their research network, attend workshops and conferences, and learn from research leaders in their field.

We offer a three to nine-month placement at a leading research institution in Europe or Africa, with additional support at your home institution before and after the placement, up to a maximum of £40,000.
