ACLS African Humanities Program Fellows 2013-2014
The ACLS African Humanities Program (funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York) announces 34 new Fellowship awards in its fifth competition year. The Fellows represent a broad range of fields in the humanities and come from many educational institutions across Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda. Their applications were evaluated by an international committee of 50 senior scholars from African universities in a rigorous process of peer review.

27 of our 34 new Fellows will be undertaking AHP-funded residencies, traveling to eight residential centers in six African countries over the course of the academic year. We congratulate our Fellows and wish them the best of luck.
