The Africa Institute, a globally oriented center for research, documentation, study and teaching of Africa and its diaspora in the humanities and social sciences, today announces the inaugural group of fellowships awarded through its new Research Fellowships Program. Conceived as a research-based think-tank and a postgraduate studies institution, the Institute offers both masters and PhD programs dedicated to training a new generation of critical thinkers in African and African diaspora studies and evolving a new model for academic research, teaching and documentation in the field.
The Africa Institute Research Fellowships Program provides the opportunity for both junior and senior scholars of African and African diaspora studies to focus on a research project and participate in ongoing scholarly and intellectual activities during their term at the Institute. The inaugural cohort includes two senior fellows and two postdoctoral fellows, and will offer fellows the opportunity to interact with scholars and academics in their area of research with the aim of enriching their scholarly experiences and future projects.
The Africa Institute welcomes interested scholars to apply by July 15, 2021 for fellowships commencing in September 2021. Applications should include a CV and cover letter indicating the proposed research project, in addition to a writing sample or publication, directed to [email protected]
