The Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) is now accepting fellowship applications for 2021-2022. CDD’s fellowship program aims to bring together people working in areas related to democracy and development from across a broad range of disciplines. CDD commits to leveraging its profile and resources in West Africa and internationally to advance CDD fellows’ research and reputation.
CDD will award two types of fellowships:
Residential Fellowships, including:
- One-year fellowships, including two named and fully funded fellowships.
- Non-residential fellowships, which are typically long-term (longer than a year).
CDD will award a modest stipend to a small number of applicants, specifically those who can demonstrate financial need. The stipends may vary depending on the length of the program. We do not expect that most fellows will receive CDD funding.
As CDD is in the nascent stages of an expanded fellowship program, we have just a few guidelines for application:
- We are only accepting applications from PhD students or post-doctoral scholars whose research is relevant to CDD’s thematic areas.
- We are not accepting applications from Nigerian citizens or Nigerian dual citizens for our residential fellowships. Nigerians and Nigerian dual citizens are welcome to apply for non-residential fellowships.
- We encourage women, West Africans, and Africans studying West Africa to apply.
- Proficiency in English is required, proficiency in French is a strong plus.
DEADLINE: June 30 2020
