Postdoctoral Support

Our work in Postdoctoral support

The immediate post-PhD period is particularly perilous for African academics in light of scarce resources for research and high obligations for teaching and administrative function. Following a period of targeted support for African universities, academic networks, and fellowship programs, the Corporation is now focused on early-career scholars that constitute a new generation of academics. To increase the ranks of advanced African academics, the Postgraduate Support subprogram offers postdoctoral opportunities, including through new models designed by African educators, that meet the needs of this cohort. Grants aim to advance academic research and dissemination, faculty retention, and international cooperation among scholars and institutions.
