Round 1 Application Deadline: March 17, 2014 | Application and Program Details

The Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program is seeking applications for fellowships and host institutions:
  • Host Institutions: Public and private higher education institutions in Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa and Uganda, accredited by the national agency in their country, can submit a project request online to host a scholar.
  • Fellowships: Scholars born in Africa, who live in the United States or Canada and work in an accredited college or university in either of those two countries, can apply online to be placed on a roster of available candidates for a fellowship. Scholars must hold a terminal degree in their field and may hold any academic rank.
Projects can be conducted in the African host country for between two weeks and one semester (14-90 days). For the fellowship, the African Diaspora Fellow will receive:
  • $250/day stipend 
  • Visa costs 
  • Limited health insurance coverage 
  • Round-trip international air travel and ground transportation costs to and from home and the U.S. or Canadian airport
For more information, contact africandiaspora@iie.org.

IIE manages the fellowships and payments to fellows. Host institutions are encouraged to provide cost-share for the fellow’s meals, lodging and in-country transportation during the project. The program is funded by Carnegie Corporation of New York (CCNY) and guided by an Advisory Council led by Quinnipiac University (QU).
