2016 Small Grants Programme for Thesis Writing


  • The grants awarded will not exceed USD 5,000 per grantee
  • Only trips for fieldwork in the country in which the research is actually conducted are funded under this grant


The Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) is pleased to announce the twenty-seventh session of its Small Grants Programme for Thesis Writing. The grants serve as part of the Council’s contribution to the development of the social sciences in Africa, and the continuous renewal and strengthening of research capacities in African universities, through the funding of primary research conducted by postgraduate students. Hence, candidates whose applications are successful are encouraged to use the resources provided under the grants to cover the cost of their fieldwork, the acquisition of books and documents, the processing of data which they have collected and the printing of their dissertations. As the Council is strongly committed to encouraging African researchers to engage one another on a sustained basis, recipients of the small grants will also be supported to order books and journals produced by African scholarly publishers, including CODESRIA itself. They will also be encouraged to apply for participation in CODESRIA research training workshops.


The CODESRIA Small Grants Programme is opened to students currently registered in PhD in African universities, and preparing their research in all social science fields and other disciplines involving social or economic analysis.


Applicants must download the application form via given website.
