Miles Morland Foundation is pleased to offer Morland Writing Scholarships offered to African writers. This scholarship is open to anyone writing in the English language who was born in Africa or both of whose parents were born in Africa.

Miles Morland set up the foundation which bears his name in 2013, after a career investing in Africa via two companies he created, Blakeney Management and DPI (Development Partners International). Based in London, the Miles Morland Foundation (MMF) is a UK charity which makes grants in areas reflecting its founder’s interests. The Foundation’s main aim is to support entities in Africa which allow Africans to get their voices better heard. It is particularly interested in supporting African writing and African literature.

Course Level: Scholarship is open to African Writers.

Study Subject: 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.
