Under the conference scheme, members of the University can apply for funding up to £1500 towards the costs of holding conferences or seminars on Africa.Members of academic staff may be part of an application for conference funding, but OReNGA encourages applications to be submitted by members of the conference team who are not members of academic staff.The next deadline for applications is Friday of Week 6, Hilary Term (22 February 2008). Further details about the schemes and how to apply can be found in the Research section of the OReNGA website.
