African Humanities Program

ACLS American Council of Learned Societies

Fellowship stipends allow recipients an academic year free from teaching and other duties for revising the dissertation for publication or for the first major research project after the PhD. Fellows are also eligible for additional benefits such as residential stays for writing, manuscript development workshops, and publication support.

Each fellow may request a residential stay at an African institute for advanced study. Residencies have proved to be extremely popular and productive, granting fellows time and space to concentrate on writing. Because residencies must be taken at an institute outside the home country, they foster international communication. Currently AHP Fellows may take residencies at six institutes from South Africa to Senegal, Ghana to Tanzania. The applicant must reside in and maintain an affiliation in one of the participating countries: Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda.
