UFS/AS Young African Scholar Award

Scholarship in African Studies still faces the challenge of capacity building to enhance ownership by authors and institutions from and on the African continent. It also requires more coordinated efforts to provide the deserved space by African authors in the international domain. This award seeks to strengthen efforts to further promote internationally recognised African scholarship in African Studies.

In 2014 the Centre for Africa Studies (CAS) – as of 2018 the Centre for Gender and Africa Studies (CGAS) – at the University of the Free State (UFS) in Bloemfontein became affiliated with the Africa Europe Group for Interdisciplinary Studies (AEGIS), of which the Institute of African Affairs at the GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies in Hamburg is a core member. The GIGA publishes Africa Spectrum, putting out three issues annually. It is listed in the Journal Citation Reports by Thomson Reuters, among other indexes. The journal is also linked to the German African Studies Association (Vereinigung für Afrikawissenschaften in Deutschland, VAD).

Sharing a commitment to African capacity building in African Studies, in 2015 the partner institutions established the first annual.
