The African Humanities Program (AHP) 2010-2011, USA
« on: Oct 27, 2010, 09:01 AM »
The African Humanities Program (AHP) seeks to revitalize the humanities in Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda through fellowship competitions and meetings associated with them. The AHP is funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.

Fellowship awards to promising African scholars are the centerpiece of the African Humanities Program. Approximately 40 such fellowships will be awarded annually. An initiative to publish the best manuscripts produced under the terms of AHP fellowships is now being established.  All fellows will be encouraged to submit their completed manuscripts to the African Humanities Series, which will be a cooperative venture between AHP and a major African university press.

Fellowship Details:
    * Applicants must be nationals and residents of a country in sub-Saharan Africa, with a current affiliation at an institution in Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, or Uganda.
    * Funding is available for dissertation completion and for postdoctoral research and writing.
    * Applicants for Dissertation Completion Fellowships should be in the final year of writing the dissertation at a university in Ghana, Nigeria, Tanzania, or Uganda. Dissertation-Completion Fellowships are not available in South Africa.
    * Applicants for Early Career Postdoctoral Fellowships must be working in Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, or Uganda and must have completed the Ph.D. no more than five years ago.
    * Projects must be in the humanities and must be carried out in sub-Saharan Africa. AHP fellowships may not be used for travel outside the continent.
    * Completed applications must be submitted by December 1, 2010. ACLS encourages the submission of applications by email to ahp@acls.org; alternatively, applications may be mailed to the AHP/ACLS offices in New York.
    * Applicants will be notified of competition results in the spring of 2011.
