  • Exploring Africa's Entrepreneurship Ecosystem

    African countries are experiencing exponential growth in the youth population. However, economies are not creating new wage-earning jobs fast enough to absorb the growing workforce.

  • Egerton University is proud to announce two grantees of the 2022-2023 Transforming Institutions Strategic Funding by the Alliance for African Partnership (AAP). The award, granted to Dr. Benard Odhiambo Oloo (Faculty of Agriculture) and Prof. Josiah Ouma Omolo (Faculty of Science) will seed institutional transformation projects which will support AAP members and partners to participate in sustainable, equitable, and research-driven partnerships that transform lives. 


    The Alliance for African Partnership is now accepting proposals for the Transforming Institutions Strategic Funding Program. Successful applicants will receive up to $20,000 in seed funding to develop international strategic partnerships with universities, institutions of higher education and research, and/or organizations in the public or NGO sectors.

    AAP will be hosting a virtual Q&A session on

    Friday, Feb 2 at 8 - 9am EST 

    This session is open to anyone interested in submitting a proposal or learning more about the Transforming Institutions program.

    Be sure to register to attend below.


    More about the call for proposals:

    AAP seeks proposals from consortium members and their partners for activities which directly address AAP's pillar to transform institutions to be better able to participate in sustainable, equitable, and research-driven partnerships that make a broader impact on transforming lives. Travel can include any of the following—within Africa, to Africa from external locations, to the US, or to other locations outside of Africa.

    • Exploratory Projects to support initial-stage partnership development. This funding is meant for new partnerships that have not previously worked together 
    • Proposal Development Projects to support partners to develop a proposal in response to a specific funding opportunity 
    • Pilot Workshop Projects to support short-term training activities or workshops 

    Proposed projects should focus specifically on institutional and capacity strengthening. This could include projects that: aim to reinforce institutional strengths; contribute to individuals’ capacity strengthening, which will lead to institutional strengthening; plan for the creation of new units or institution-wide initiatives; and/or pilot new approaches to support research, teaching, or outreach that can be scaled up across the institution(s).

    Proposals that address at least one of the following focus areas will receive priority in review:

    • student success
    • financial management systems
    • diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI)
    • science communication 

    Submissions are due by March 1, 2024
