Jo Vearey's picture

The African Academy for Migration Research (AAMR) is funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and is an initiative of the African Research Universities Alliance (ARUA). It is being implemented and managed by the African Centre for Migration and Society (ACMS) at the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa. The ACMS is the ARUA Centre of Excellence for Migration and Mobility.

The AAMR has two overarching aims: (1) to build the research capacity of the next generation of African migration scholars (2) to support the professional development of the next generation of African migration scholars.

We are currently inviting applications for:

- PhD and postdoctoral completion grantsCovid-19 continues to have a huge impact on PhD students and postdoctoral fellows. In recognition of this challenge, the AAMR is offering top-up grants that can support the completion of doctoral or postdoctoral projects. A completion grant is intended to cover late-stage costs related to a project (e.g. finalising fieldwork, writing time and living expenses). Information on how to apply can be found here.

- The first online training institute Global Health Histories, Contagion & Migration: (Bio)Citizenship in Africa. Call for applications and information on how to apply can be found here.
