25. Africa MBA Fellowship - Stanford Graduate School of Business

Africa MBA Fellowship: Africa is at the forefront of significant global economic growth and opportunity.
Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) is excited to contribute to the region's human and economic development by educating leaders committed to making an impact on the continent.  

The Stanford African's MBA Fellowships Program pays for tuition and associated fees (approximately US$140,000) for citizens of African countries with financial need who wish to obtain an MBA at Stanford GSB.
The Fellowship was created to reduce the financial barrier for African citizens to pursue an MBA at Stanford GSB. Up to eight fellowships will be awarded annually.

Within two years of graduation from Stanford GSB, Stanford Africa MBA Fellows are required to work in Africa for at least two years in a professional role that contributes to the continent’s development.

Africa MBA Fellowship Eligibility

You must be a citizen of an African country. Dual citizens are eligible for the fellowship as long as one citizenship belongs to an African nation. Permanent residents of an African country are not eligible at this time.

You must have completed, or be in the final year of completing, your university studies.
If you studied at an undergraduate or graduate institution in Africa, we especially encourage you to consider applying for the Stanford Africa MBA Fellowship Program. 
Citizens of countries in Africa who studied in countries outside of Africa  remain eligible for consideration.

Stanford Africa MBA Fellows must return to work in Africa, within two years of Stanford MBA graduation, to work for a period of at least two years.
Stanford MBA students pursue a wide variety of careers as alumni: you will be prepared to succeed in organizations of every size and description.

As a Stanford Africa MBA Fellow, we expect you to contribute the management and leadership skills you learned at Stanford to developing the African economy.
As such, our expectation is that Stanford Africa MBA Fellows will be committed to African organizations with significant operations and impact in the region.
Africa MBA Fellowship - Financial Aid

To determine your financial need, you must complete Stanford’s financial aid process after you are admitted.
All Stanford MBA students, regardless of citizenship, are eligible for financial assistance based on your demonstrated financial need.  
Stanford GSB provides need-based fellowship to MBA students without regard to citizenship.  
For international citizens, Stanford GSB offers a loan program that does not require a US co-signer.

The financial aid application process requires information about your assets and income.  

Stanford Africa MBA Fellows receive financial support for the cost of Stanford MBA tuition and associated fees for the full duration of the two-year course of study.

If you are admitted to the Stanford MBA Program but are not selected as a Stanford Africa MBA Fellow, you remain eligible to receive financial aid based on the need you demonstrate in your financial aid application. Your award will typically include a combination of fellowships and loans.

60. AfricaAdapt Knowledge Sharing Innovation Fund

AfricaAdapt Knowledge Sharing Innovation Fund: The Knowledge Sharing Innovation Fund will offer grants of up to US$10000 to projects that seek to overcome barriers to sharing knowledge with ‘hard to reach’ or marginalised African communities.

This fund seeks to support small-scale projects that offer innovative and practical ideas and strategies for communicating/sharing between different stakeholder groups, of vulnerability to climate change, impacts and adaptation responses.
It is aimed at small scale initiatives proposed by African research groups, community-based organisations, co-operatives, networks and other local institutions in either urban or rural locations.
The competition is open to research, local and civil society organisations, cooperatives and community networks across Africa.
Organisations must be registered in their host country and evidence of registration (reference no. date and place of registration) provided for the full proposal.
International organisations may apply provided that they are registered in Africa and have collaboration with partners in Africa.

75. Call for Applications for Visiting Lectureships

Call for Applications for Visiting Lectureships: The African Economic Research Consortium is a public not-for-profit organization devoted to advanced policy research and training. 

The principle objective is to strengthen local capacity for conducting independent, rigorous inquiry into problems pertinent to the management of Sub-Saharan African economies through a synergistic programme combining economic research with postgraduate training in economics.

The AERC is supported by donor governments, private foundations and international organizations.

The Joint Facility for Electives (JFE)

The JFE is an intensive teaching environment that offers a full range of elective courses in the Collaborative Masters Programme (CMAP) and Collaborative PhD Programme (CPP).

Each year, from late June to early November, eligible CMAP and CPP participating universities send their postgraduate students to the joint facility in Nairobi.

The JFE admits approximately 70 CMAP students and about 50 CPP students after their successful completion of core courses comprising Microeconomics, Macroeconomics and Quantitative Methods in their home universities.

The CMAP JFE runs for a duration of 14 weeks comprising 2 semesters of 7 weeks each, while the CPP JFE runs for 16 weeks divided into two 8-week semesters.

Apart from encouraging a more efficient use of resources, the JFE offers an ideal environment for networking and a structured exchange of people, ideas, materials and methods that reduce isolation and stimulate continued growth and collective improvement in quality.

On successful conclusion of JFE coursework, draft theses and examinations, students return to their home universities for final thesis preparation.

In the case of CPP, candidates also sit comprehensive examinations in core and elective fields, and present PhD thesis research proposals and post-field reports during the AERC biannual research workshops.

Call for Applications for JFE Visiting Lectureships

On behalf of Departments/Schools of Economics of CMAP and CPP participating universities, the AERC wishes to invite applications from qualified and experienced scholars willing and able to teach the following courses:

For CMAP, the first semester will run from June 24 to August 9 and the second from August 12 to September 27, 2013. 

In the case of the CPP, the first semester will start on July 1 and end on August 30, 2013 while the second one will run from September 4 to November 1, 2013.

In addition, applicants for the CPP JFE lectureships must hold the position of senior lecturer or above with a track record of quality research publications and doctoral student research supervision.

Qualified female applicants are strongly encouraged to apply.

Competition for African Journalists: Future Agricultures Consortium (FAC), in collaboration with the Institute of Statistical, Social and Economic Research (ISSER) of the University of Ghana, is organising an international conference to debate research findings and policy options around the theme “Young People, Farming & Food: the Future of the Agrifood Sector in Africa.”
In the run-up to the international conference, FAC is running a competition to find the best media reporting in Africa on young people and agriculture.
This competition aims to encourage young and early career journalists and media specialists (between ages 18-40) to investigate the challenges and opportunities associated with young people’s engagement in agriculture, to showcase success stories and best practices that can be replicated, and to raise awareness on the important role of young people in agriculture and rural development.
The competition is open to all media and communication professionals (either print, broadcast or electronic) who are nationals of African states and are from established media houses, private and public sector organisations (e.g. government ministries), and non-governmental organisations including farmer organisations.
Entries should be original pieces and demonstrate realities on the ground.
The piece should be based on case studies/information from the country or region in which the journalist/media specialist operates.
Each candidate will submit only one print (in word doc or docx format) or audio piece (in mp3 format) from any African country.
Any accompanying photos for print articles should be sent as jpegs. The title and the name of the author should be clearly written on the cover page to the piece, or details included in email with audio piece.
Applicants must submit their entry in English only by email.
Entries should be submitted to post [at] wrenmedia.co.uk and copied to info [at] future-agricultures.org
Your journalistic piece must reach the organisers by no later than 17th February to be considered for inclusion in the competition.

84. Coral Reef Conservation Project (CRCP)

Coral Reef Conservation Project (CRCP): Coral Reef Conservation Project (CRCP) research focuses on resource use, coral reef and fish monitoring, climate change, and marine protected areas.
Results from this work have already provided important lessons that can be applied to the wider region.
Research, outreach, capacity building and education are all important elements of this conservation program.
Students/investigators are invited to apply for a volunteer position with Coral Reef Conservation Project (CRCP).
Positions usually last from 2 to 3 months, with potential to stay up to 6 months.
Student/investigators will work in ongoing research programs but will also have the opportunity to work on their own independent research as long as it does not detract from existing research and work schedules.
Coral Reef Conservation Project (CRCP) can often assist with small or permanent research, snorkeling and diving equipment but cannot cover salaries, and students/investigators from outside the region are expected to cover their international travel and some basic living expenses including cost of food.
Students/investigators can stay at the Coral Reef Conservation Project (CRCP) office for a minimal fee of US$5 per night.
It can only house and coordinate 2 students/investigators at any one time, therefore timing is important, and interested students/investigators will need to plan in advance to be able to coordinate among other visitors.
Coral Reef Conservation Project (CRCP) is located in a beachside office, next to the Mombasa Marine National Park and has a good computer network (5 networked Apple computers), a library (7000 titles), two bedrooms, and cooking and washing facilities.
As part of the conditions for working with Coral Reef Conservation Project (CRCP), students/investigators are required to leave their data with the project at the end of position, and students/investigators grant authority to Coral Reef Conservation Project (CRCP) to use this data for future studies and to insure quality analysis.
Scholarship and relevance of work are prime considerations in being accepted into the program.
The project is currently listed among the top 10 coral reef institutions based on its rate of publication.
It also has a scholarship program that supports a few African – Indian Ocean nationals every year.
Please use the below contact for more information.

88. Dissertation Research Fellowships

Dissertation Research Fellowships: The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) invites applications for Ph.D. dissertation research fellowships on the Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture Index (WEAI), in collaboration with US Government's Feed the Future initiative, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI).
About the WEAI
The WEAI is the first measure to directly capture women's empowerment and inclusion levels in the agricultural sector. The WEAI focuses on five domains:
·  Decisions over agricultural production,
·  Power over productive resources such as land and livestock,
·  Decisions over income,
·  Leadership in the community, and
·  Time use. Women are considered to be empowered if they have adequate achievements in four of the five areas.
The Index also takes into consideration the empowerment of women compared with men in the same household, based on asking women and men the same survey questions.
Objectives of the Fellowship
The objectives of sponsoring PhD work on the WEAI are the following:
·  Strengthen understanding and evidence of the WEAI through application to other settings or furthering knowledge surrounding a particular domain or analysis of the Index.
·  Expand understanding of WEAI dynamics through complementary qualitative and ethnographic work on domains or frameworks underlying the WEAI.
·  Support promising researchers interested in gender and agriculture through strengthening capacity for research, fieldwork and policy experience, and to build collaborations with their home academic institutions.
Research proposals supported under this call must be focused entirely or mostly on one or more of 19 FTF focus countries.
The FTF focus countries eligible for research proposals are Bangladesh, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Nepal, Rwanda, Senegal, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia.
More information about FTF and its activities in those countries can be found on the FTF website.
Proposals submitted for this fellowship have the option of using quantitative methods, qualitative methods or mixed methods.
Applicants may propose to use secondary data (as specified below) or collect their own data. However, proposals including primary data collection or participation at some level in fieldwork are highly encouraged.
Applicants can propose use of IFPRI pilot survey data or use of/field participation in ongoing FTF monitoring baselines, which will be granted and coordinated with FTF contingent upon funding of proposals.

1. Using mixed methods to better understand key questions and assumptions surrounding women’s decisionmaking and autonomy in agriculture-related production and how these dynamics may affect measurement and data collection, with implications for index application in Uganda and Ethiopia.
2. Using quantitative data to validate diverse measures of time use indicators using data from Cambodia and how variations in these indicators have implications for the WEAI and gendered program evaluation.
3. Program evaluation of a specific agriculture and food security intervention in Honduras using quantitative, qualitative or mixed methods using the WEAI as a key outcome.
4. Examining relationships between the WEAI domains or indicators and agricultural productivity or household food security in Bangladesh to estimate how increasing women’s empowerment could contribute to other policy objectives.
·  Support for this research and the overall WEAI development is provided under funding from USAID.

Financial Assistance for Young Entrepreneurs: The Business Daily, a publication of the Nation Media Group, has launched an ideas competition that will discover Kenya’s top innovators and link them up with venture capitalists for financial and management backing they need to develop into profitable enterprises.
Known as "The Next Big Thing" the competition targets Kenyans with big entrepreneurial ideas, but without the money to get them started in the marketplace.
The Nation Media Group has teamed up with Kenyatta University — the knowledge partner and Enablis Africa — the logistics partner to execute the plan.
The contest is open to innovators from all parts of the country and will specifically target young entrepreneurs in high school, colleges and universities.
Innovators will submit entries to any of the 12 categories, including agribusiness, ICT, manufacturing, transport, tourism, green business and ecology, and energy.
Entries can also be made in sports, leisure and entertainment, health, transport as well as marketing.
Innovators can present only one idea for each category.
At close of the submissions, a panel of specialists will pick the best 20 ideas and present them to Kenyatta University’s (KU) incubation centre for training on how to package and present the ideas to potential financiers or mentors.
The five-member selection panel of made up of a banker, investors and an entrepreneur will choose the winning applications based on originality of the idea, its potential to change lives, commercial viability as well as a clear explanation of the skills required to implement it.
Apart from linking the innovators to financiers and mentors, The Next Big Thing is the Nation Media Group’s contribution to the ongoing search for solutions that can help resolve Kenya’s top most social challenge — mass unemployment among the youth.

111. Graduate Scholarships for African Students

PhD and MSc Graduate Scholarships for African Students -  Apply for PhD and MSc Graduate Scholarships in the Cassava value chain, under the project "Support to Agricultural Research for Development of Strategic Crops in Africa" (SARD-SC), funded by the African Development Bank.
Cassava is a major food crop in sub-Sahara Africa and one of the most important sources for carbohydrates.
It is a major source of income for the farmers and a raw material for local industries. 
In the past years, cassava production and processing have been facing a lot of challenges such as no supply chain structures for the commercialization of cassava products, high cost of the production versus low yields as well as production orientation towards subsistence and not commercialization.
The International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (www.iita.org) and its SARD-SC project partners is working to develop new technologies and innovations to improve cassava production, processing and marketing so as to improve on food security and contribute to poverty reduction of target countries through a value chain approach.
These new technologies and innovations will be developed and promoted through platforms comprised of stakeholders from participating countries (DR Congo, Tanzania, Zambia and Sierra Leone) and focusing on one of five main intervention areas: breeding, agronomy, agribusiness, gender, postharvest and policy.
Gender issues will be considered and incorporated through all these areas.
The SARD-SC project is aligned with national agricultural development plans and processes as smallholder cassava businesses in each country are already primed to boost productivity through their prior participation with other cassava projects.
PhD and MSc Graduate Scholarships for African Students – Number of Fellowships
As part of its human capacity building component, the project is offering up to ten (10) MSc and seven (7) PhD scholarships at African universities.
Scholarships will be comprehensive and include stipend, research costs, tuition, travel and insurance.
PhD and MSc Graduate Scholarships for African Students - Areas of Research
The International Institute of Tropical Agriculture is offering scholarships related to the cassava value chain, in the field of Agronomy/Natural Resource Management; Postharvest, Mechanization; Gender; Agribusiness; Marketing; or any other closely related field.

132. MRC/DfID African Research Leader Scheme Funds

The MRC/DfID African Research Leader scheme is a prestigious award, jointly funded by the MRC and the UK’s Department for International Development (DfID), for non-clinical and clinical researchers of exceptional ability.
The aim of the scheme is to strengthen research leadership across sub-Saharan Africa by attracting and retaining talented individuals undertaking high quality programmes of research.
Lack of grant funding and research infrastructure in some sub-Saharan African countries can make it difficult to retain and attract talented African scientists.
As such, African nationals are currently under-represented as leaders in medical research in the region.
They will, therefore, particularly welcome applications from researchers, from less resourced sub-Saharan African countries.
Applications are also encouraged from African researchers currently working overseas who wish to return to sub-Saharan Africa.
Funding for the scheme is provided by the MRC and the Department for International Development (DfID).
The scheme aims to support up to five Research Leaders in this round.
Funding is available for up to 5 years and should not exceed £500k.
The majority of the funding will be for work taking place in the African research organisation and so would be eligible for full economic costing (FEC) exceptions paid at 100%.

150. Scholarships for Developing Countries - Sweden

Scholarships for Developing Countries - Sweden: The Swedish Institute and the Swedish International Development Co-operation Agency (Sida) sponsor a range of scholarships for master's level studies at Swedish universities, targeted at citizens of developing countries and for specific programmes.
You are eligible for these scholarships if you are a university graduate, citizen of a developing country and have several years of relevant work experience.
The purpose of these scholarships is to help grow special competencies in targeted countries.
Eligibility is thus restricted to candidates from specific countries seeking admittance to approved programmes at Swedish universities.
Because Sida has identified different developmental needs in different countries, your citizenship determines which programmes are available for scholarship support.
Priority
In the scholarship selection process, your application is given priority if you can secure a leave of absence from your job which allows you to return upon completion of your studies.
If not enough applicants meet this criterion, your application will be considered if you have at least five years of relevant work experience.
Citizenship, study level and study areas Eligible countries are listed by programme. Below each approved master’s programme you’ll find a list of countries whose citizens are eligible for scholarship support under that programme.
Study period
The master’s level programmes are between one and two academic years in duration.
They usually start at the end of August or early September.
Language
You need to have a good knowledge of English. All approved master’s level programmes are taught in English.
Scholarship benefits
Currently, a scholarship pays SEK 8,000 per month, plus travel costs to and from Sweden.
These scholarships are designed to cover living expenses for one person only.
Tuition for the eligible programmes is free.
Application
You can apply for this scholarship when you apply for admission to one of the approved master's programmes at a Swedish university.
There is no application form for this scholarship. Do not send any master's scholarship requests or applications to the Swedish Institute.
Instead, you apply directly to the university for the master’s programme and at the same time inform them that you would like to be considered for this scholarship.
Some universities let you indicate this on their admission application forms.
In other cases, you will need to attach a letter to your admission application spelling out your request for this scholarship explicitly.
Note: Contact information are found on the specific programmes.

161. Two Plus One Business Degree Scholarships

Bangkok School of Management(BSM) Business Degree program is the main reason people decide to study at BSM.
2+1 means exactly what it says: You will begin your degree at BSM's training facilities in Bangkok, and spend two years with us.
Then, for the final year of your degree, you will study with the university of your choice, from a list of leading universities across the USA, United Kingdom, Europe and Asia.
Even if you want to stay in Thailand for the final year of your degree, you still have the option to complete your degree with a western university via distance learning, if that is what you prefer.
Successful business leaders and entrepreneurs often speak of their time as a student as being the most memorable time of their life.
At the same time, many also express regret that they did not make more use of their carefree days, prior to accepting the larger responsibilities of life in the business world.
A gap year abroad is a great way to ensure a memorable experience before graduating, but this would hardly be a productive use of your time.
The 2+1 Business Degree program offers you the opportunity to do both at the same time; improving yourself academically and socially while taking in the wonder and intrigue of Asian lifestyle, without sacrificing the end result: A Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration, Marketing, International Business or SME Management from a globally recognized university of your choice!

Fellows will spend a minimum of six months at the World Bank in Washington, D.C. getting hands-on experience in development work. 
This includes knowledge generation and dissemination, design of global and country policies and the building of institutions to achieve inclusive growth in developing countries. 
While benefitting from research and innovation in multiple sectors, Fellows will also work on economic policy, technical assistance, and lending for eliminating poverty and increasing shared prosperity. 
Special attention will be given to work with Fragile and Conflict-Affected States.
Fellows will be expected to complete a research project and prepare a research paper to present to staff. High-standard papers may be published internally.
Specifically, selected participants will:

  • Gain a better understanding of the World Bank Group's mission and operations
  • Access quality data for their research work
