The Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program (CADFP) is a scholar fellowship program for educational projects at African higher education institutions. The program is intended to bridge members of the African diaspora living in the United States or Canada with institutions of higher learning in select African countries including Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda. Fellowships of two weeks to one semester (14 to 90 days) in Africa are available for Diaspora scholars. Fellowship funding to scholars includes a daily stipend, visa costs, limited health insurance coverage, international travel, domestic travel to and from the airport in Canada or United States. The host institution is encouraged to fund housing, meals and local transportation to and from the airport in the host country. Host institutions submit a request for research support and are matched with an African scholar for assistance.
Eligibility: To be an African Diaspora Fellow, you must be an African-born academic scholar living and working at an accredited U.S. or Canadian university/college. Scholars must also hold a terminal degree in their field of expertise.
