This policy provides guidelines for the provision of grant information at the end of the grant period of grants funded by Science for Africa (SFA) Foundation. This information is useful to evaluate if the grant achieved its intended objectives.
SFA Foundation requires an end of grant report to ensure that the research has been carried out in accordance with its remit and enables SFA Foundation to review the outputs and outcomes of recently completed research, assess the quality of the innovation or research undertaken and identify important questions raised.
In cases where an end of grant report is not received within four months of the grant end date, the grantee responsible for the report is automatically barred from applying for further SFA Foundation funding until the outstanding report is received.
