All applications are to be addressed to the Executive Secretary.  ACBF receives project and program proposals from government ministries and departments, private sector and civil society organizations as well as regional institutions and universities.

To be eligible for ACBF support, project and program applications must be in line with ACBF’s mandate and its strategic priorities. Eligible projects and programs go through a rigorous assessment process by a Project Review Committee within the Secretariat before review and approval by the Executive Board of ACBF.

ACBF's financial support to our institution has helped us a great deal. We look forward to continued partnership with ACBF in pursuit of capacity building in STEM for Africa's sustainable development.
