African-born scholars living in the US or Canada and faculty of accredited tertiary institutions in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda can apply for the Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship to carry out research or undertake curriculum co-development.
The Fall 2018 competition will open on October 1 and will close on December 9, 2018. The CADFP is always accepting applications for the scholar roster.
Scholars must have been born in Africa, live in the United States or Canada and work in an accredited college or university in either of those two countries. To be placed on a roster of available candidates, scholars also need to hold a terminal degree in their field and can hold any academic rank. University staff, research associates and postdocs are not eligible. Scholars submit brief personal statements and information on their academic qualifications, disciplinary expertise and administrative experience. A letter of reference from an administrator at the scholar’s current college or university with the position of dean or higher is required. Candidates matched with a project receive a fellowship, to engage in an educational project at an African institution for one visit between 21 and 90 days.
