DigiFI is excited to offer research funding to resident and non-resident African Scholars.
- Resident African Scholars include those who have completed a PhD and are based in an African academic institution.
- For this funding round, we are expanding our funding opportunities to non-resident African Scholars – those who completed high school in Africa, have a PhD, and are based in an academic institution outside of Africa.
Resident and non-resident African Scholars are eligible to apply for Proposal Development Grants (up to $10,000) and Pilot Grants (up to $75,000). Full RCT funding eligibility is extended to African Scholars who have successfully completed a pilot funded by J-PAL (up to $400,000). Targeted mentorship will be provided to African Scholars who receive funds from the Initiative.
