Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program (CADFP) 2022-2023

The Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program (CADFP) is a scholar fellowship program for educational projects at African higher education institutions. Offered by IIE, the program is funded by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York (CCNY). A total of 583 African Diaspora Fellowships have been awarded for scholars to travel to Africa since the program’s inception in 2013. CADFP exemplifies CCNY’s enduring commitment to higher education in Africa. IIE manages and administers the program, including applications, project requests and fellowships.

The Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program is a fellowship program for African institutions in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda to host an African-born scholar to work in projects in research collaboration, graduate student teaching/mentoring and curriculum co-development. The application process has two parts.

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 a project that fits their expertise is submitted by an African host institution.
