This fund is open to any current undergraduate or graduate students at Oxford University. If submitting a request for use as part of a team-based project, at least one team member must be a current Oxford student. Please note that a team cannot consist of more than two individuals.
Winners will be announced at the 2023 Oxford Africa Conference, hosted by the Oxford University Africa Society. The event will take place on the 12th and 13th of May, 2023.
All submissions must be made through the AfriSoc website. Our innovation seed fund panel of three members will review the applications after the deadline of April 13th, 2023. They will evaluate the proposals based on their innovativeness, originality, and practicality.
We seek to support innovative research ideas and are looking for projects that can effectively demonstrate how they will ultimately benefit local communities in Africa. The proposals must be audacious and highly innovative, and we encourage
potentially risky concepts.
