The Francis H. Brown African Scholarship is a resource that is desperately required by students who are interested in earth science and botany in East Africa.
By providing financial assistance to East African researchers and students who are pursuing research in these areas, the Francis H. Brown African Scholarship Fund aims to expand human knowledge and the scientific community’s interest in earth sciences and botany related to the origins of humans. This will be accomplished by encouraging further study in these fields. Additionally, the money will be used to support research that expands upon the work done by Dr. Francis H. Brown and helps institutions and nations in East Africa develop their capabilities in the fields of earth and botanical sciences.
