The ERAA awards were designed to promote excellence in educational research in African universities, research institutes and networks and also among Africans in institutions in other parts of the world. The awards seek to identify, reward and foster outstanding accomplishments in educational research in Africa.

Only individuals who are under the age of 40 are eligible for the Emerging Education Researcher Award and the selection for 2011/2012 was through a rigorous two tiered evaluation process of hundreds of candidates.
