The Africa Prize encourages ambitious and talented sub-Saharan African engineers from all disciplines to apply their skills to develop scalable solutions to local challenges, highlighting the importance of engineering as an enabler of improved quality of life and economic development.
Shortlisted applicants receive crucial commercialisation support through an eight-month period of training and mentoring. Following this period of mentorship, finalists are invited to present at an event held in Africa and a winner is selected to receive £25,000 along with three runners-up, who are each awarded £10,000.
The Africa Prize is supported by The Shell Centenary Scholarship Fund and the UK Government’s Global Challenges Research Fund.
