African host institutions may request a Diaspora scholar to work on a project for a period of 14 to 90 days.  The CADFP supports multiple fellowship types.  Host institutions can name a specific eligible scholar, or submit a project without one.  If a request is submitted without naming a specific scholar, IIE will search the CADFP Scholar Roster to identify a qualified candidate.

Eligible types of project activities are:

  • curriculum co-development,
  • research collaboration, and/or
  • graduate student mentoring and training.

Project requests must include a letter of support from an administrator at the level of Dean or higher at the prospective host institution.  All materials, including the letter of support, must be submitted online.
