Call for Applications: Africa Fellows in Education Program 2024/2025

Submission deadline: April 1, 2024

Inviting young researchers from sub-Saharan Africa who are interested in educational improvement to apply for this two-year research and policy development fellowship.

The Africa Fellows in Education Program (AFEP) aims to improve education decision-making across Sub-Saharan Africa as part of a strategy for long-term economic development through a skilled population.

AFEP is building a group of Africa-based leaders capable of developing evidence and shaping educational policies relevant to their countries. They will be part of a global network of such people and will help build local networks of strong advocates for improving schools.

AFEP will support this network of local policy fellows with enhanced skills in evaluating existing educational research, developing and using performance data to make better decisions, and introducing rigorous evidence into the decision-making process.  

For this, the Global Education Analytics Institute (GEAI), in collaboration with PEP, invites young African researchers, who are motivated to work on educational improvement and could benefit from additional support, to submit an expression of interest in the AFEP.

Under the AFEP, the fellows will participate in a two-year research and policy development fellowship that introduces them to relevant research and analytical experiences and international networks of researchers and policy advisers.
