The 2016 Grant Application round is open until 31 May and, with over US$240,000 worth of funding to distribute, all Africa-based projects, organisations or start-ups whose work falls into the following categories are encouraged to apply:

– Technical Innovation

Project proposals from African-based public or private sector organizations, universities, or research and development institutions and non-government organizations will be considered.

FIRE Africa actively encourages Francophone, Lusophone, female-led projects, projects originating in post-conflict countries, and projects that support isolated communities. We also encourage projects that use technology to address the specific challenges faced by women and girls, disabled people or marginalised groups.
