The Carter G. Woodson Institute for African-American and African Studies at the University of Virginia invites scholars whose work focuses on Africa and/or the African Diaspora to apply for a two-year pre-doctoral research fellowship. The fellowship covers two years (beginning and ending in August) and carries an annual stipend of $24,000, plus health insurance.
The pre-doctoral fellows must be in residence at the University of Virginia for the duration of the award period. Fellows are expected to participate in the series of workshops held during the academic year and to present their work periodically to the larger academic community. Fellows may accept no employment, fellowships, or consulting obligations during the Woodson fellowship period without the approval of the Director.
