Travel Bursary (closed)

Womandla! Feminism and Social Movements in the Global South is pleased to announce that we will be able to offer some small travel bursaries for postgraduates and early career researchers, primarily those in the Global South.


These travel bursaries are thanks to the generous support of the Institute Français d’Afrique du Sud – Recherche / French Institute of South Africa – Research and the International Studies Group at the University of the Free State (UFS). In addition, Third World Quarterly’s Global South Colloquium Fund has ensured that there will be no registration fee and that attendance will be free to all delegates.


This application process is intended to support those postgraduates and early career researcher delegates who have little to no access to funds which could facilitate attendance at this conference. Please note that preference will be given to delegates located in Southern Africa and elsewhere across the Global South (ie. Africa, Asia, Latin America, Pacific Islands, the Caribbean). However, delegates located in the Global North (ie. Europe, North America, Australia) are still welcome to apply.

We hope to extend at least some funding to as many eligible delegates as possible. All travel bursaries will be partial and primarily dedicated to covering accommodation at Kovsie Inn, which is located on campus at UFS. In exceptional circumstances, we hope to make available a very small number of additional travel bursaries. In order to support as many people as possible, however, we can only consider funding for the cheapest mode of travel from any given locality.


To apply for a travel bursary, please fill out the following form by midnight Central Africa Time on 15 February 2020. For more details about travel to Bloemfontein, please check the Travel and Accommodation section of our website. Successful travel bursary recipients will be notified by 15 March 2020.
