Funding description and application


The GLOCAL AFALA – The Conference of African Linguistic Anthropology seeks to assist individuals who are not in a position to finance their own travel to and registration for The GLOCAL AFALA conference, as well as other expenses pertaining to the GLOCAL AFALA conference. The GLOCAL AFALA is strictly non profit, and all surplus monies sourced by grants must be directed to assisting those requiring funding, and hence to increase the visibility of and strength of work in African Linguistic Anthropology.


The awarded individuals must satisfy a range of criteria, which include the following

  • Lowered socioeconomic conditions (as determined by the OECD)

  • Exceptional scholarly work relevant to The GLOCAL AFALA

  • Not be receiving other financial support for attending The GLOCAL AFALA

Review procedure

The GLOCAL AFALA funding review committee will scrutinize and review every application and will revert to the applicant at the appropriate time so to discuss the possibility of awarding the funding.


The applications for funding surpass several thousand annually, that is, for every GLOCAL AFALA, and hence, the competition for funding is strong. The GLOCAL AFALA however urges applicants to not be deterred by competition, and to submit applications for funding.

Please be reminded that we can not fund the presentations for which the author has found a replacement reader.
