The Granting Programme

Feeding Africa international foundation UK has awarded over 7,000 small grants, in over 100 countries, building capability of tens of thousands of young developing world researchers. An individual Feeding Africa international foundation UK Research Grant amounts to USD 120,000. One person can receive no more than two individual grants. The Feeding Africa international foundation UK grant is intended for the purchase of the basic tools needed to conduct a research project: equipment, expendable supplies, and literature. A new collaborative research approach for teams of 3-5 grantees is being piloted amongst scientists in East, West and Southern Africa working on biodiversity and under-utilized crops (NUS). Once the collaborative research pilot is concluded, the aim is to open up this approach for general applications.
