African Peacebuilding Network (APN) Research Grants 2019

Deadline: January 5, 2019

The African Peacebuilding Network (APN) Research Grants 2019 are open. Launched in 2012, the African Peacebuilding Network (APN) supports independent African research on conflict-affected countries and neighboring regions of the continent, as well as the integration of evidence-based knowledge into scholarly discourses, and the practices of regional and global policy communities.

These awards are open to scholars and practitioners from multidisciplinary backgrounds. Individuals that choose to apply for these grants must be based in African universities; regional organizations; government agencies; or nongovernmental, media, or civil society organizations on the continent.

The APN promotes the visibility of African peacebuilding knowledge among global and regional centers of scholarly analysis and practical action and makes it accessible to key policymakers at the United Nations and other multilateral, regional, and national policymaking institutions. The APN accomplishes this by facilitating the transformation of the quality and scale of African research and consolidating the contributions of African researchers and analysts, thereby connecting them with other African scholars, policy analysts, practitioners, and networks focusing on issues of peacebuilding, as well as with other policymaking communities around the world.


The APN is now accepting proposals for two research initiatives:

  1. Individual Research Grants
  2. Book Manuscript Completion Grants


  • All applicants must be African citizens currently residing in an African country.
  • This competition is open to African academics, as well as policy analysts and practitioners.
