Accredited universities in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda can submit a project request to host a scholar. Scholars born in Africa, who live in the United States or Canada and work in an accredited college or university in either of those two countries, can apply to be placed on a roster of available candidates for a fellowship. Scholars must hold a terminal degree in their field and may hold any academic rank. Scholars who have already received a fellowship in the fall 2015 or spring 2016 competitions, are not eligible to participate.

Selection decisions will be made in March 2017; project visits can begin as early as May 1, 2017 and must be completed by August 31, 2017. Projects can be conducted in the African host country for 14-90 days. For the fellowship, the African Diaspora Fellow will receive a $200/day stipend, visa costs, limited health insurance coverage, and round-trip international air travel. Deadline: December 8, 2016. Contact: Jeremy Coats ( Website.
