African Economic Research Consortium Small Grants

African Economic Research Consortium Small Grants


The African Economic Research Consortium supports annual National Policy Workshops in Anglophone, Francophone and Lusophone African countries. The main objective of these workshops is to provide a forum at national level, where policy issues in relation to economic development are addressed. The workshops also provide a forum for discussing policy-oriented syntheses of AERC research and for obtaining feedback from policy makers on the AERC research agenda.

Criteria for eligibility

Governments, institutions, organizations, professional associations, and other organizations associated with the AERC and dealing with national economic development and policy issues may apply for a grant.

Themes and Topics

The applicants should come up with themes and topics dwelling on national economic development and policy issues on projects supported by AERC.

The grant applications submitted for organizing national policy workshops should include the following sections:

  • Lead Applicant, institution and Address
  • Workshop Theme/Title
  • Workshop objectives
  • Summary of the proposed workshop topics
  • Description of the main activities
  • Venue of the workshop
  • Tentative Budget

    Professional Association

    Grants to Professional Associations provide support to strengthen the economics profession in Africa to foster closer links between academic and policy communities. The size of grants: AERC covers up to US$10,000 per event, subject to availability of funds.

    Applicants for these grants must apply in English or French. The application should be precise and provide sufficient details to ensure clarity, particularly relating to how the aims of the workshop will be achieved, the benefit that will flow from it and the way in which the proposed workshop is relevant and beneficial.

    Conference Participation

    AERC supported Conference Participation grants are issued to AERC network members, largely for capacity building. This grant is meant to facilitate the travel of African economists (AERC network member) to present the results of their AERC-funded research to regional and international conferences. The grant, which generally does not exceed US$ 5,000 must be accounted for.

    AERC supports network members who have been invited to present a paper at a conference, however, the paper to be presented must have emanated from a research project sponsored by AERC. If one fits in this category, all they have to do is write a formal application

    addressed to the Executive Director stating the dates of the conference, the venue and attaching a tentative budget plus other relevant documentation for consideration.
