The African Peace building Network (APN) of the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) invites applications for the Individual Research Grant Program. A core component of the APN, the research grants program is a vehicle for enhancing the quality and visibility of independent African peace building research both regionally and globally, while making peace building knowledge accessible to key policymakers and research centers of excellence in Africa and around the world.

Grants are awarded on a competitive, peer-reviewed basis and are intended to support six months of field-based research, from June 2017 to December 2017. Recipients will produce research-based knowledge that is relevant to, and has a significant impact on, peace building policy and practice on the continent. For its part, the APN will work toward inserting the evidence-based knowledge that this group produces into regional and global debates and policies focusing on peace building.
