AAP Success Stories
AAP 2017 Grant AwardsThe AAP issued an open call for proposals in September 2016 to encourage innovative new partnerships, provide inception period funds for MSU-African teams, and raise MSU’s presence and contributions to addressing key African and global challenges. With over 65 proposals received, the external and internal review process resulted in 15 proposals being chosen as recipients of the Alliance for African Partnership’s first-ever grant competition.
All proposals are led by teams that include both MSU faculty and partners from African organizations, and have the potential to create or build on long-term, sustainable collaborations.
