Ouida Undergraduate Project Support Grant

In the last two years of university, many undergraduates who would like to write their theses on contemporary books are discouraged from doing so because they do not know where to get the books they need, nor do they have access to existing research.  

With our Undergraduate Project Grant, we would like to support Nigerian undergraduates who are interested in exploring new and exciting African novels when writing their final university projects. Every year, we will support 20 Nigerian applicants by providing:

  • a free copy of the book requested
  • an Undergraduate Project Support Grant of ₦10,000 only
  • support in getting an email interview with the author of the book

In return, we expect a bound, hard copy of the project for our archives AND the author’s permission to publish the project summary on our website so that other researchers who would like to access the project can contact the grantee directly.
