Professional development opportunities for African academics

[Updated 9 January 2018.  New entries are marked with an asterisk.]

While there are a decent range of scholarships available for African students doing MAs and PhDs, the professional development opportunities for African academics appear more limited.    I’ve put down what I could find, but I’m sure there are more – please send any recommendations my way!   They’re listed by funding type and by country or region.

I include the link to the current version of the fellowship or grant offered when I found it, so some of the links may now be out of date.  I don’t plan to update all the links every year, so if you find an outdated link, just search for the current information on the program.
