IFS Collaborative Research Grants 2014

IFS announces a call for Collaborative Research Proposals from early-career scientists in Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda,
with a focus on research into biodiversity.

Interested young researchers from these countries are invited to express their interest to participate in the development of collaborative research proposals by filling out the expression of interest form.

Those who express interest will be invited to join an online collaborative environment that is being used for this project. You do not need to know any collaborators before expressing interest. The purpose of the online environment is for researchers to find and get to know suitable collaborators, create research teams and prepare proposals for submission to IFS. Further instructions will follow to those who register interest to participate.

Eligibility criteria:
You are a citizen of Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania or Uganda and carrying out your research in any of these countries

You have a Masters or PhD degree (or equivalent academic degree)

For first time IFS grant applicants, men should be younger than 35; women should be younger than 40 years of age

For those who already had a grant from IFS, you may participate in this programme and apply for a Collaborative Research Grant provided IFS have accepted your report on the previous IFS Grant, no later than the closing date for application submissions for this programme
