Accra, June 27, GNA– The Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program (CADFP) has announced the award of 56 fellowships to individuals and institutions to take part in joint academic projects with resident institutions in Africa.

CADFP fellows traveling to Africa will collaborate with academics at their host institutions on projects, ultimately aimed at working synergistically to improve the quality of African higher education.

A statement copied to the Ghana News Agency said the areas of the collaboration include research, curriculum co- development and graduate student teaching and mentoring.

It noted that the CADFP had so far funded 584 fellowships for African-born scholars from the United States and Canada to collaborate with over 203 institutions of higher learning in Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda.

The statement said the Carnegie Corporation of New York and the Institute of International Education (IIE) continued to work with partners, Fellows and Hosts to deepen and strengthen the highly successful CADFP model.

It said the new partnership with the Association of African Universities (AAU), a Pan-African higher education institution with a membership of over 400 universities, would help improve the quality of African higher education development and policy.

With the diaspora as a strategic priority, AAU engages governments across Africa on various issues, including advocacy for incremental investments in the higher education sector.
