The British Council is inviting applicants for its Newton Fund’s Researcher Links Trilateral Workshops grants.

These grants are funded under the Newton Fund Opens in a new tab or window., a UK Government initiative funded by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), together with partner funders from Kenya and South Africa. The fund aims to promote the economic development and welfare of either the partner countries or, through working with the partner country, to address the problems of low-income and vulnerable populations.

Joint applications are made by senior researchers from the partner countries who lead the workshop. Once funded, grants are available for early-career researchers in the UK and the partner countries to attend and participate.
