Scholars Selected for African Diaspora Program
A group of 33 African Diaspora scholars have been selected to collaborate with higher education institutions in Africa on curriculum co-development, research, graduate teaching, training and mentoring activities, as part of a fellowship funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
The winning Carnegie African Diaspora Scholars were selected from proposals submitted by 24 institutions in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda.
The scholars will receive Fellowships to travel to the African host institutions beginning this month to undertake the projects.

The program is managed by the Institute of International Education in collaboration with Quinnipiac University....
