Nonfiction and fiction writers can apply for a grant.
The Miles Morland Foundation awards annually a small number of Morland Writing Scholarships.
The scholarships are open to anyone writing in the English language who was born in Africa or whose parents were born in Africa.
Fiction scholars will receive GBP18,000 (US$22,701), paid over a period of up to 12 months. Nonfiction scholars, who require additional research time, could receive that amount plus an additional grant, paid over a period of up to 18 months.
Candidates must submit an excerpt from a piece of work of 2,000 to 5,000 words written in English that has been published.
The deadline is Sept. 18.
