Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Programme 2024

Applications are currently open for the 2024 Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Programme.

The Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Programme (CADFP) is a fellowship programme for African institutions in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, and member institutions of the African Research Universities Alliance (ARUA) and partner universities with the Consortium for Advanced Research Training in Africa (CARTA) to host an African-born scholar to work on projects in research collaboration, graduate student teaching and mentoring, and curriculum co-development. 

African-born academics currently living in the United States or Canada and working at institutions of higher education can submit a Scholar Application to the Scholar Roster. The scholar can work with a specific host institution on a project request or remain on the roster until an African host institution submits a project that fits their expertise.


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.


To be eligible for the African Diaspora Fellowship, 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 full-time at an accredited college or university.
