Oppenheimer Programme in African Landscape Systems (OPALS)

Engage with OPALS

Funding Finder – 3rd party funding to join OPALS

Since the inception of OPALS, we have been overwhelmed by the number of people keen to join us and be part of the team. We welcome contact from any people who share our passion to be supported to make a difference to environmental sustainability through applied research where it is most needed. Sadly, the number of individuals applying far exceeds the number of funded training posts available, leading to fierce competition for every opportunity.

However there are many third parties who can help fund talented individuals looking to join our OPALS community whether through study on undergraduate, masters, or doctoral programmes, research fellowships or exchanges/visits. To help prospective applicants find relevant awards, we have developed a Funding Finder Application, which signposts relevant awards that could support all nationalities to engage with OPALS.

If you are planning to apply for funding to support engagement with OPALS, you are advised to contact Dr Andrew Cunliffe <a.cunliffe@exeter.ac.uk> to discuss your proposed project and optimise alignment with the programme.
