The Chair in African Philanthropy and the Wits Business School, with support from the Carnegie Corporation of New York invite applications for research fellowships which will increase empirical knowledge about African Philanthropy and Social Investment. Research outputs will assist in developing a cadre of scholars and practitioners in these fields, as well as inform teaching and further research. Two types of fellowships are available for doctoral and masters’ degree students.

Doctoral Fellowship
The fellowship will support research. Eligibility for this fellowship is for a student already registered in the doctoral programme at an African university. The research should lead to at least one article suitable for publication in accepted academic journal(s).

Applications should include: (i) proof of PhD enrolment; (ii) written approval by the candidate’s supervisor; (iii) a copy of the approved PhD proposal; (iv) detailed specification of the research topic, fellowship assistance required, including its intended results and the journal(s) to which a research article will be submitted and; (v) a compelling motivation.
