Nnamdi Azikiwe International Fellowship, University of Michigan announces grant of $2000 for research


The African Studies Center recognizes that international African students at MSU have few opportunities to apply for grants and fellowships to conduct research in Africa, which are typically reserved for US citizens and permanent residents. For this reason,

  • This fellowship is only available to African undergraduate or graduate students conducting research in Africa
  • Applicants must be enrolled in an MSU degree-granting program at the time of application, and awardees must return to MSU as registered students in the semester following the award
  • Students in good academic standing and with demonstrated financial need will be given priority
  • Applicants must successfully complete any MSU requirements related to doing research abroad (IRB training, for example)
  • Fellowship recipients must write and submit a report (3 to 5 pages) to the African Studies Center within one month of their return from Africa
  • Applicants must successfully complete any MSU requirements related to conducting research outside of the country (such as IRB training)
  • Priority will be given to students in good academic standing and with demonstrated financial need.

One or more fellowships worth up to $2,000 each will be given out to cover fieldwork and/or travel costs in Africa. Students must raise additional funds if their expenses exceed the amount of the award because the money is only intended to cover costs.

Selection Process

The fellowship program is administered by the African Studies Center and the selection of winners will be determined by an African Studies Award Selection Committee with members appointed by the Center Director. The submission window is open from September 1st to October 30th, 2022.
