Support Us

Join our efforts to inspire and support research and academics in Africa. Every gift counts!

The African School of Economics (ASE) is based on a sustainable model; our operating expenses are funded by tuition and fees. Thanks to your donation, ASE will continue to grow. Your donation can go towards three different funds:

Graduate Student Funds (Scholarships)

Outstanding graduate students are essential to a vibrant program. Scholarships provide a critical edge to our ability to attract the best students. Most graduate students require financial support in order to pursue their studies. Individuals and organisations that support students at the school make a vital difference in helping us to attract the very best students regardless of their financial circumstances.

Faculty Travel Funds

Donations are applied toward grants that fund research trips and conference registration fees for our faculty members. Funds can also cover expenses associated with field research and can facilitate the invitation of high-profile visitors to visit ASE. These intellectual exchanges are of tremendous value to our research and education.

Research Funds

Individuals and organisations that support research activities at ASE contribute to the consolidation of ASE’s research institutes. Research is a key element in our university. Your donation will make it possible to pursue in-depth original study about topics of interest.

Donors will receive an annual report with detailed information on how gifts have been used.
