Campus resources include rich collections of materials related to Africa in our libraries and museums. The librarians have compiled a very helpful resource including the African Studies and African Country Resources @ Pitt. This guide provides selected high-quality resources on the global, political, economic, social and cultural aspects of the continent of Africa and its countries. It features individual country pages as well as sources searchable by topic or country.

The library also offers finding grants workshops that might be of benefit to anyone interested in applying for public and private grants to support their study abroad or other activities in Africa.


Feel free to contact the Center for African Studies for guidance and support on applying for grants or with any questions you may have.
