Future Rural Africa invites applications for the Future Rural Africa Female Researchers Grants in 2022.

The aim of the grants is to promote female researchers at all stages of their careers. For this reason, support is given to creative scientific ideas that fit the content of the CRC in the broadest sense and are not covered yet. The grants are, therefore, designed to enable female researchers to gain more visibility, expand a network, or build more expertise.

Worth of Award

In view of this, the amount of the grant is 5,000 Euros each.



  • Future Rural Africa welcomes applications from female master students, PhD students, Postdocs and Junior Professors who are part of or associated with the Collaborative Research Center Future Rural Africa.
  • Applications from scientists from the CRC´s African partner countries are strongly encouraged.

How to Apply

When sending in your applications, you must include a description of the research idea and its implementation (about 2 pages), a description of the required funds and your CV.

Having done that, applications should be sent via email in PDF format to [email protected]

Very Important

  • Depending on the needs, this grant is awarded to one female scientist each or split among several applicants.
  • Without a doubt, the money may be used for research-related expenses, but not for living costs. By implication, the grant may be spent on travel expenses, consumables, fees and assistance or services.

Deadline: The deadline for applications for the Future Rural Africa Female Researchers Grants is July 31, 2022.
