The Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation
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. Crucial commercialisation support is awarded to a shortlist of innovative applicants through a six-month period of training and mentoring.
The Africa Prize is generously supported by The Shell Centenary Scholarship Fund, Consolidated Contractors Company, The Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s Africa Prosperity Fund, ConocoPhillips and the Mo Ibrahim Foundation.
Following this period of mentorship, finalists will be invited to present at an event held in Africa and a winner will be selected to receive £25,000 along with runners-up, who will each be awarded £10,000.
Entries closes on 30 June, 2016.
