The African Humanities Program: Through fellowship competitions, regional workshops, and peer networking, the African Humanities Fellowships Program provides support to the humanities in five African countries, including Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda.

The program is supported by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York.

The centerpiece of the program is the distribution of fellowships to African scholars in these countries for work on dissertations, research projects, and scholarly manuscripts.

The African Humanities Fellowship Program awards approximately 40 such fellowships every year.

In coordination with African scholars, ACLS hosts a series of annual meetings in the five African countries participating in the program.

These meetings provide opportunities for senior African scholars from a variety of disciplines to collaborate with ACLS representatives in the local design of programs, while giving younger scholars a means to learn about the application process and gain feedback on their project proposals.

Through the activities of the African Humanities Fellowship Program, ACLS promotes local and transnational cooperation among humanities scholars at all stages of their careers, working towards the development of a self-sustaining network of African humanities scholars.

The African Humanities Fellowship Program is inspired by a commitment to the humanities as a core component of higher education in Africa, essential to progress and development.
