Open Society University Network (OSUN) Research Hub in Eastern Africa Fellowship 2021

Deadline: March 19, 2021

Applications for the Open Society University Network (OSUN) Research Hub in Eastern Africa Fellowship 2021 are now open. The Open Society University Network (OSUN) Research Hub in Eastern Africa invites applicants to a 10-month research fellowship. Selected Fellows will serve as the inaugural cohort for the Hub and will have the opportunity to work closely with faculty and OSUN leadership on setting the agenda and direction of the work.

OSUN is global in scope, with deep partnerships among diverse institutions committed to addressing global challenges collaboratively. The network seeks to integrate curricula and research across institutions in different countries. The Research Hub is a critical part of OSUN’s broader work in Eastern Africa, which includes undergraduate course offerings for displaced and host community learners as well as teacher training in these same contexts.

Research proposals should focus on one of OSUN’s Academic Themes and should situate research in the region of Eastern Africa:

  • Democratic Practice
  • Sustainability
  • Inequalities
  • Human Rights
  • Arts and Open Society
  • Global Public Health

The Hubs are also very interested in research related to pedagogical developments in marginalized settings. 

Fellowship

  • Fellows will receive a stipend of US $700 each month over a ten-month period.
  • During the fellowship, recipients will be guided by an OSUN faculty member or other specialist for regular readvising and editorial input.

Eligibility

  • Open to people from or working in Eastern Africa.
  • Research proposals should focus on one of OSUN’s Academic Themes and should situate research in the region of Eastern Africa.

Application

Candidates should submit a resume showing their interests and experience in conducting research, two letters of reference, a writing sample of not more than 10 pages, and a one-page proposal for the research and writing they propose to complete by the end of the fellowship period. The work can include written, audio or video material. Final submissions will need to be in complete, edited, publishable form by January 2022.
