WARA Post-Doctoral Fellowships

West African Research Association

In the interest of enhancing transatlantic exchange and collaboration, the West African Research Association, with funding from the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the US State Department, WARA holds an annual competition for Post-doctoral fellowships. The WARA Post-Doctoral Fellowship, for 2 to 3 month's research in West Africa during the summer of 2016, is for the purpose of 1) completing or elaborating upon an earlier project; 2) initiating a new research project; or 3) enhancing understanding of a particular topic in order to improve teaching effectiveness or broaden course offerings. This competition is open to U.S. citizens already holding a Ph.D. who are currently affiliated with an academic institution or who work in another related domain (e.g. public health or museology). All applicants must have been affiliated with an institution of higher education or research within the last three years. It is advisable that applicants be conversant in an African language spoken where they will be conducting research.
