Africa Oxford Initiative (AfOx) Travel Grants For African Researchers.

AfOx Travel Grants support the establishment of new collaborations between researchers in African countries and their collaborators at the University of Oxford. Travel Grants are open to all disciplines and open all year round. So far we have awarded 200 travel grants to researchers from the African continent and the University of Oxford.

The duration of AfOx travel grant can be between 1 to 8 weeks, and grants can be applied for a maximum of £5000. Applications for a travel grant must be made jointly between academics or researchers based in Africa at either an academic and non-academic institution and academics or researchers at the University of Oxford. Search our researcher database to find a collaborator.

If applicable, please indicate how your project addresses a particular challenge linked to the Sustainable Development Goals. The travel award may cover more than two people and additional individuals should be named under ‘Purpose of the Grant’. The overarching aim of the scheme is to foster the development of new collaborations and the scheme is not intended to be used as alternative support for already established collaborations.

Requirements

Administration of the award will be the responsibility of the home department of the Oxford applicant including visa, travel and other financial expenditure.

What

The Travel Grant can be used to cover costs of travel (in either direction i.e. University of Oxford, UK to an institution in Africa or vice versa), accommodation and incidental expenses to a maximum of £5000

After

Applicants will be required to submit a brief report within one year of the award to give details of outputs arising from the collaborative visit using this link.

Ian Parry Scholarship Prize 2021 For Young Photo Journalists

Ian Parry was a photojournalist who died while on assignment for The Sunday Times during the Romanian revolution in 1989. He was just 24 years of age. Aidan Sullivan, then picture editor, and Ian’s friends and family created the Ian Parry Scholarship in order to build something positive from such a tragic death. Each year we hold an international photographic competition for young photographers who are either attending a full-time photographic course or are under 24.

The Ian Parry Scholarship is divided into two categories: The Sunday Times Award for Achievement and The Canon Award for Potential.

The entry criteria for both is the same and the judges will make their decisions based on the individual merits of the entries. Entrants must submit a portfolio and a clear proposal of a project they would undertake if they won the scholarship.

Benefits

Benefits include:

Each winner will receive $3,500 towards their chosen project.

Canon Europe continues to support the Scholarship and loans equipment to the winners.

Attend a portfolio review day with leading industry experts in London (covid permitting).

Mentorship Programme, we offer a year-long personal Mentorship to the winner of The Canon Award for Potential.

Both winners will have the opportunity to take part in the Transmissions Programme at Visa Pour L’Image in Perpignan.

World Press Photo, automatically accepts the winner of the Achievement Award into its final list of nominees for the Joop Swart Masterclass in Amsterdam.
