Call for Applications for the ANFASA Grant Scheme for Authors 2015

19 Aug 2015

The Academic and Non-Fiction Authors’ Association of South Africa has announced the latest round of its grant scheme for writers:

If you are currently working on a scholarly or a general non-fiction work, and are a member of ANFASA, you are eligible to apply. If you are not yet a member of ANFASA you can join at the same time as you submit your application.

The grants are intended to provide a sum of around R20 000 to R25 000 to be used for an author to “buy time” – to take leave, for instance, and devote herself or himself to writing; or to travel in order to conduct research. The grants are for research and writing, and do not cover the cost of publishing the manuscript.

Application details: ANFASA

Deadline: 30 October 2015
