2024/2025 Africa Oxford Initiative (AFOX) Visiting Fellowship Program: Fully Funded Opportunity for African-Based Researchers & Academics to Oxford University

The AfOx Visiting Fellowship Programme is designed to enable researchers from Africa to establish international connections, pursue their chosen projects, and collaborate closely with scholars at Oxford. AfOx Visiting Fellows will be affiliated with the University of Oxford for a period of 12 months. This includes ten months of virtual engagement and a two-month, in-person visit to Oxford during May and June (Trinity term).

During the fellowship, AfOx Fellows will be associated with a specific department and college within the University. To be eligible for a fellowship, all applicants must have a collaborator based at Oxford named in their application. Detailed information for both applicants and Oxford researchers can be found in our fellowship applicant guide and collaborator guide.

The AfOx fellowships welcome applications from all academic disciplines across the University’s departments. We particularly encourage applications from female and underrepresented researchers.

AfOx fellows have established enduring partnerships with Oxford colleagues, resulting in significant research outcomes such as joint publications, the initiation of new research endeavors, improved engagement with African policymakers, and substantial research funding. Through this program, African scholars have not only enriched the intellectual and social fabric of Oxford but also gained access to a wide range of resources, knowledge, and expertise within the University.
