The African Graduate Student Research Fund committee was formed in 2013 as an ad hoc committee and was promoted to a standing committee in 2016. The name was changed to African Research Fellowship in 2021. Its mission is to support the next generation of African mammalogists by awarding individual grants of $1,500 and an online ASM membership to African nationals pursuing graduate degrees. Between 2014 and 2018, 2-3 awards were granted annually; in 2019, 4 proposals were funded, and in 2020 this number increased to 5. The increase in the number of recent awards reflects several generous donations—please consider contributing! The next deadline for applications is 15 April 2022.
