EASST Visiting Fellowship for East African Researchers in USA



The EASST Visiting Fellowship seeks to equip East African social scientists with the skills needed to carry out rigorous evaluations of social or economic development projects in East Africa. During a four-month fellowship in the Fall (August-December 2016) or Spring (January-May 2017) semester, researchers will be based at the University of California, Berkeley. Selected fellows will be able to audit courses, present research, attend semi
nars, develop curricula and design collaborative research projects. Fellows will receive a living stipend, round-trip economy class air travel to Berkeley, CA, and the opportunity to receive seed funding promote impact evaluation at their home institution in East Africa. To be eligible, researchers must be residents of an East African country (Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, or Uganda) and hold a staff or student position at a research institution, university, or other organization headquartered in East Africa.
