Fully Funded Research Fellowships for Africans from The Royal Society 2020

The Royal Society in partnership with the African Academy of Sciences (AAS), and with the support of the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) is offering the Future Leaders – African Independent Research (FLAIR) Fellowships. These fellowships are for talented African early career researchers who have the potential to become leaders in their field. These fellowships provide the opportunity to build an independent research career in a sub-Saharan African institution and to undertake cutting-edge scientific research that will address global challenges facing developing countries.

Fellowship Objectives:

The objectives of this scheme are to:

  • Support talented early career researchers to establish an independent research career in African institutions.
  • Enable high-quality research that addresses the global development challenges faced by the African continent.
  • Provide world-class support, training, mentoring and networking opportunities to benefit early career African researchers.


You can apply for this scheme if you:

  • Are a national of a sub-Saharan African country;
  • Hold a PhD by the time you apply;
  • Are an early career researcher with a minimum of two years of research experience since completing your PhD and no more than eight years of post-doctoral research experience;
  • Wish to hold the fellowship in a research institution in an Official Development Assistance (ODA) eligible sub-Saharan African country;
  • Have a clearly defined scientific research proposal focusing on one or more of the Global Challenge areas.

Research must be within the Royal Society’s remit of natural sciences, which includes but is not limited to biological research, chemistry, engineering, mathematics and physics. The Royal Society does not cover clinical medicine (such as patient orientated research and clinical trials), social sciences or humanities, other than when working in partnership with organisations.
