Grant Proposal Writing Workshop for Africa-based Early Childhood Development Researchers

Education Sub Saharan Africa and the Research for Equitable Access and Learning (REAL) Centre at the University of Cambridge, with funding from Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, will host an in-person Grant Proposal Writing Workshop for Africa-based Early Childhood Development (ECD) researchers.

The workshop addresses the professional development needs of ECD researchers identified through our ongoing Early Childhood Development (ECD) project. The project’s goal is to improve the accessibility and use of research evidence generated by Africa-based researchers focusing on ECD, in decision-making by various stakeholders (e.g., policymakers, researchers, and funders/investors).

As part of the project, we investigated research priorities and professional development needs of these ECD researchers through an online survey, online and in-person workshops, and consultations with experts.

Among the top priorities for researchers’ professional development needs was opportunities to strengthen their grant proposal writing. Having listened to the researchers, partners of the project are now organising this workshop to enhance ECD researchers’ knowledge and skills in grant proposal writing, as well as provide opportunities for networking and potential collaboration.

The African Population and Health Research Centre (APHRC) will facilitate the workshop which will be held in Nairobi, Kenya from Monday, 24th June to Friday 28th June 2024.
