Call for Applications: Morland Writing Scholarship 2019 (opens June 30)

Morland Writing Scholarships 2019

We are delighted to share that the Miles Morland Foundation has announced that the 2019 Morland Writing Scholarships for African writers will open for entries this Sunday, 30th June. The deadline for submissions is Monday 30th September.

For all information on how to apply, please see the page marked ‘Entry Requirements and FAQs’ on the website ( ).


The Miles Morland Foundation’s main aim is to support entities in Africa which enable Africans to get their voices heard. It is particularly interested in supporting African writing and African literature.

It can be difficult for writers, before they become established, to write while simultaneously earning a living. To help meet this need the MMF annually awards a small number of Morland Writing Scholarships, with the aim being to allow each Scholar the time to produce the first draft of a completed book. The Scholarships are open to anyone writing in the English language who was born in Africa, or both of whose parents were born in Africa.​
