ACLS Invites Applications for African Humanities Fellowships
To that end, the council’s African Humanities Program seeks to reinvigorate the humanities in Africa through fellowship competitions and related activities in Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda. In partnership with the Carnegie Corporation of New York, AHP offers African scholars an integrated set of opportunities to develop individual capacities and to promote the formation of scholarly networks. The African Humanities Program supports the Carnegie Corporation’s efforts to develop and retain African academics at universities in Africa.
Fellowship stipends are intended to give recipients an academic year free from teaching and other duties to completion and/or revise their Ph.D dissertation for publication, or in support of the first major research project after the Ph.D. Fellows are also eligible for additional benefits such as residential stays for writing, manuscript development workshops, and publication support.
Each fellow may request a residential stay at an African institute for advanced study at an institute outside the home country. Currently, AHP Fellows may take residencies at six institutes, from South Africa to Senegal, Ghana to Tanzania.
