One of the Nordic Africa Institute’s Strategic goals is to contribute to building capacity in the production of knowledge about Africa. The purpose of the African Guest Researchers’ Scholarship Programme is to provide opportunities for Africa-based researchers with a PhD to work and develop their ongoing research at the Nordic Africa Institute. The scholarship offers access to the Institute’s library and other resources that provide for a stimulating research environment.

Through the programme, the Nordic Africa Institute can promote and establish relations with and between
African and Nordic research communities.

Requirements:

The scholarship programme is directed at postdoctoral researchers based in Africa and engaged in
Africa-oriented research within the disciplines of Social Sciences and Humanities. The applicant should
be affiliated to an African university/research center and have a proven track record of extensive
research experience.

The Institute strives to achieve a fair distribution of scholarship positions in regards to gender and
geographic focus.

The maximum duration of the stay is 90 days, minimum is 60 days. Please note that the subsistence

institutions in the Nordic countries, including the Nordic Africa Institute, are closed or at least running at a reduced capacity during the periods 15 June–15 August and 15 December–15 January.
Applicants can thus not choose these periods for their visit.

The Institute’s library is specialized in literature on contemporary Africa and focuses on Social
Sciences. Furthermore, Guest Researchers have access to the Uppsala University Library and to the
Library of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.

Guest Researchers have the possibility to present their research at the Nordic Africa Institute and to
