Bourses d’étude à Londre – Miles Morland Foundation

Miles Morland Foundation is pleased to offer Morland Writing Scholarships offered to African writers. This scholarship is open to anyone writing in the English language who was born in Africa or both of whose parents were born in Africa.

To help meet this need the MMF awards annually a small number of Morland Writing Scholarships, with the aim being to allow each Scholar the time to produce the first draft of a completed book.

Course Level: Scholarship is open to African Writers.

Study Subject: The Scholarships are open to anyone writing in the English language who was born in Africa or both of whose parents were born in Africa.

Scholarship Award: Scholars writing fiction will receive a grant of £18,000, paid monthly over the course of twelve months. At the discretion of the Foundation, Scholars writing non-fiction may receive a grant of up to £27,000, paid over a period of up to eighteen months.

Number of Scholarships: Not Known

Scholarship can be taken in Africa

Eligibility: The following criteria must be met in order for applicants to be eligible for scholarship:

To qualify for the Scholarship a candidate must submit an excerpt from a piece of work of between 2,000 – 5,000 words written in English that has been published and offered for sale,. This will be evaluated by a panel of readers and judges set up by the MMF. The work submitted will be judged purely on literary merit. It is not the purpose of the Scholarships to support academic or scientific research, or works of special interest such as religious or political writings. Submissions or proposals of this nature do not qualify.

How to Apply: The only condition imposed on the Scholars during the year of their Scholarship is that they must write. They will be asked to submit by e-mail at least 10,000 new words every month until they have finished their book or their Scholarship term has ended. If the first draft of the book is completed before the year is up, payments will continue while the Scholar edits and refines their work.

All inquiries and submissions relating to the Morland Scholarships should be directed to scholarships-at-milesmorlandfoundation.com
