Pushing the Research Envelope
Programs involve learning state-of-the-art techniques and tools. Fellows and Scholars are expected to produce cutting-edge research and share widely with broad audiences.
More than anything, mentorship is at the center of all programs. This means that you will consistently work with your professors as you conduct your work alongside our professors.
Supportive Pan-African Community
Our programs draw Fellows and Scholars from all African countries and in the Diaspora. The community is supportive and encourages continual growth. We also expect Fellows and Scholars to share the fruits of their work with broad audiences.
