The Emeka Kalu Ezera Fellowship:
An endowment has been established in memory of Emeka Kalu Ezera to support graduate students from African countries south of the Sahara at the University of California at Berkeley.
The funds from the endowment are assigned to the Center for African Studies to aid student scholars at the graduate level concentrating in African Studies.
Funds may be requested for maintenance, travel, or research costs, as appropriate to enhance pre-dissertation and dissertation research on Africa.
Ezera funds may be used to supplement, but not substitute for, other grants.
Currently, grants from the Ezera fund will be in the $500 to $1000 range.
The Ezera Fellowship gives priority to graduate students from West Africa who show exceptional promise of advancing scholarship in African Studies in the social sciences, humanities, and public policy and who demonstrate strong leadership potential.
Students from other African regions are eligible and are encouraged to apply.
Students must have been accepted for admission at the University of California at Berkeley when they apply and must be enrolled before funds may be dispersed to them.
A total of no more than two years of support will be provided to a recipient of this fellowship; applications for the second year of support will be considered de novo along with other applications for that year.
