Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Application Deadline: December 1, 2013

The Next Generation Social Sciences in Africa program, funded by Carnegie Corporation of New York and administered by the Social Science Research Council, responds to a shortage of experienced faculty and resources for faculty-led research initiatives in African higher education. The program offers fellowships to nurture the intellectual development and increase retention of early-career faculty in Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda. Applications are now being accepted.

The program features three distinct competitive fellowship opportunities for early-career social science faculty who hold positions in accredited colleges and universities:

1. Doctoral dissertation proposal fellowship: Supporting short-term research costs of up to US $3,000 to develop a doctoral dissertation proposal.

2. Doctoral dissertation research fellowship: Supporting 9-12 months of dissertation research costs of up to US $15,000 on a topic related to peace, security, and development.

3. Doctoral dissertation completion fellowship: Supporting a one-year leave from teaching responsibilities with a stipend of up to US $15,000 to permit the completion of a dissertation that advances research on peace, security, and development topics.

Eligibility: All applicants must be citizens of and reside in a sub-Saharan African country while holding a current faculty position at an accredited college or university in Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, or Uganda. Applicants for any of the funding opportunities offered through this program must have a master's degree and be working toward completion of the doctoral degree within an African university. The program seeks to promote diversity and encourages women to apply.
