Research Proposal Application

Before submitting your proposal, please keep in mind that anyone who wants to come to undertake research at Kasanka needs to be very self sufficient. Your budget should therefore take into account costs associated with Kasanka’s assistance – such as accommodation, transport, whether you will need a guard/scout etc.
