Submit Applications for APN Individual Research Grants!

Deadline: 5 January 2019

The African Peacebuilding Network (APN) of the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) is seeking applications from African researchers, policy analysts, and practitioners working on conflict and peacebuilding issues at universities and research institutions; or regional, governmental, and nongovernmental agencies or organizations in Africa for its Individual Research Grants with an aim to support independent African research and its integration into regional and global policy communities.

A core component of the APN, the Individual Research Grants program is a vehicle for enhancing the quality and visibility of independent African peacebuilding research both regionally and globally, while making peacebuilding knowledge accessible to key policymakers and research centers of excellence in Africa and around the world.

Grant recipients produce research-based knowledge that is relevant to, and has a significant impact on, peacebuilding scholarship, policy, and practice on the continent. For its part, the APN works toward inserting the evidence-based knowledge that grant recipients produce into regional and global debates and policies focusing on peacebuilding.
