Fellowships

APHRC has supported the best and most promising researchers working on African development issues. Through its pre-doctoral, doctoral and postdoctoral fellowship programs, the Center has supported and mentored hundreds of young Africa scholars. Under the African Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship, more than 200 fellows from across the continent have received support to complete their doctoral dissertation.The Center has mentored more than 100 postdoctoral fellows, many of whom are now leading institutions and major multi-country research programs.

African Doctoral Dissertation Research Fellowship (ADDRF)

OVERVIEW

Over the 2017-2021 period, the Center will explore opportunities to systemize these programs and expand their regional reach. Most of the doctoral interns at APHRC often come from northern universities with resources to support short-term placements. How to provide similar opportunities for students at less well-resourced African institutions will be a primary objective for the RCS Division. We will draw on existing relationships to develop new opportunities for co-hosting and mentorship of postdoctoral fellows, and explore opportunities to create new fellowship programs to support young Africans with undergraduate training to cultivate their interest in research careers, and sabbatical fellowships and faculty exchanges among African universities to increase local and regional research collaboration.
