Evidence in Governance and Politics (EGAP) invites scholars based in academic or research institutions in sub-Saharan Africa and working on issues related to governance, accountability, or political participation to apply for a 4-month fellowship at the University of California, Berkeley, in the USA.
The EGAP Visiting Fellowship seeks to offer social scientists from sub-Saharan Africa the time and resources needed to focus on producing high-quality, quantitative research evaluating innovations in governance, accountability, and political participation. The primary goal of the fellowship will be for the fellow to develop a paper, based on the fellow’s research, suitable for submission to a high-level academic journal. Fellows will be based at the University of California, Berkeley for four months during the fall (approximately 19 August – 28 December 2020) or spring (approximately 12 January – 14 May 2021) academic semester.
- Be residents in a sub-Saharan African country
- Hold a faculty or research staff position at a research institution or university in sub-Saharan Africa
- Have completed or be enrolled in the PhD program in economics, political science, statistics, public policy, epidemiology/public health, or another social science discipline that included training in quantitative methods
