The Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program (CADFP) is a fellowship program for African institutions in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda to host an African-born scholar to work in projects in research collaboration, graduate student teaching/mentoring and curriculum co-development.
To be eligible for the CADFP, a scholar must:
- Have been born in any African country, as evidenced by the biographical data in the scholar’s passport;
- Live in the United States or Canada;
- Hold a terminal degree; and
- Be employed at an accredited college or university.
Scholars may hold any academic rank, but postdocs are not eligible.
As part of the application, scholars submit personal statements and information about their academic qualifications, disciplinary expertise, and administrative experience. A letter of recommendation from a Dean (or from an administrator of equal or higher level) from the scholar’s current institution is required.
African Diaspora Fellows receive the following:
- a $150/day stipend
- visa costs (if required)
- supplemental health insurance coverage
- round-trip international air travel and ground transportation costs to and from the scholar’s home to the North American airport
- potential opportunities to apply for supplemental funding to cover knowledge production activities and workshop attendance.
