CODESRIA Small Grants for Thesis Writing: The Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) runs an annual competition under its Small Grants Programme for Thesis Writing.
The grants are designed to contribute 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 post-graduate students and professionals.
In this connection, candidates whose applications are successful are encouraged to use the resources available 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 thesis/dissertation.
As the Council has a strong interest in 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 Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) itself.
They will also be encouraged to apply to attend Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) research methodology workshops.
The Programme is open to graduate students and professionals currently registered in African universities preparing their theses and dissertations in all social science fields and in other disciplines involving social or economic analysis.
Preference is given to those registered for Doctoral Studies (PhD or equivalent) with fewer grants dedicated for Masters and MPhil theses.
