The Cambridge-Africa Program was created as a fusion initiative from a number of individual, mutually-beneficial, and long-term collaborations between Cambridge and African researchers.
Founded in 2008, the Cambridge-Africa scheme originated from the Founder, Professor David Dunne’s collaborative research on neglected tropical diseases across Africa in long-term partnerships with many highly talented African colleagues.
The initiative was launched after the realization that Africa had brilliant researchers, who had neither the facilities nor resources they needed and deserved to effectively identify and deal with Africa’s challenges
The initiative aims to provide materials, resources, and support required to mentor the huge numbers of talented, next-generation, young researchers that Africa will need to maintain and accelerate its economic progress and future well-being.
In a counter approach, leading research-intensive universities like Cambridge who are rich in exactly these resources and expertise were enlisted to help African colleagues and institutions bridge this short and medium-term mentorship gap.
Then Cambridge-Africa was created. The program grew to encompass all subject areas — from archaeology to zoology – and cuts across all of sub-Saharan Africa.
Within 10 years of creation, the Cambridge-Africa ALBORADA Research Fund program has sealed partnership in 50 African Institutions, across 18 countries with regional outlets in Ghana and Uganda, a network of over 200 Cambridge collaborators, support for more than 40 African Ph.D. fellows in Africa and Cambridge and support for 75 Africa-based postdoctoral fellows.
The deadline to submit an application for the research funding is Sunday 6th September 2020
Referees chosen by applicants will be contacted between September-October 2020
Application results will be announced by October 2020
All applications submitted by joint applicants from both backgrounds are reviewed by a board of trustees on the Cambridge-Africa board
