What is the Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program?

The Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program (ADF) is a scholar fellowship program for educational projects at African higher education institutions. Offered by IIE in partnership with Quinnipiac University (QU), the program is funded by a two-year grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York (CCNY), to support 100 short-term faculty fellowships for African-born academics. The program exemplifies CCNY’s enduring commitment to higher education in Africa. IIE manages and administers the program, including applications, project requests and fellowships. QU provides strategic direction through Dr. Paul Tiyambe Zeleza and an Advisory Council he chairs.

What is the vision of the ADF program?

The ADF program builds on the work and vision of Dr. Paul Tiyambe Zeleza, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Professor of History at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut. CCNY funded his research, resulting in the insightful report, “Engagements between African Diaspora Academics in the U.S. and Canada and African Institutions of Higher Education: Perspectives from North America and Africa” (1 MB, PDF).
