From the academic year 2013-14, LSE is delighted to be able to offer a number of fully-funded Visiting Fellowships for early career and more senior African academics to spend up to 6 months at LSE.
The African Research Fellowship Programme has been generously supported by an anonymous donor, Atlantic Philanthropies, Richard Delbridge, and the LSE Centennial Fund. The Programme is a key component of the LSE African Initiative which seeks to engage with African institutions and promote knowledge exchange. It specifically supports the goal of connecting African faculty with their global peers to establish the foundation for research collaboration.
Dr Asnake Kefale was awarded the LSE IDEAS African Research Fellowship for 2014.
Dr. Sergio Chichava from the Instituto de Estudos Sociais e Econimicos in Mozambique, was at LSE IDEAS from 1 January 2013 until 30 June 2013.
