The Academic and Non-Fiction Authors’ Association of South Africa (ANFASA) is accepting applications for the ANFASA Grant Scheme for Authors (AGSA).

The grants, which average ZAR30,000, are intended for books rather than articles, although a compilation of essays are eligible.

Possible works include biography or an autobiography; a history of a town or a region or a religion; a book about music or sport or theatre; a political or social analysis; an account of everyday life in a township; and more.

The deadline is July 31.
