Application Instructions and Forms
The Center for African Studies is pleased to announce the 2013 competition of two undergraduate fellowships of up to $3,000 each to support undergraduate travel to Africa for research and study. The award is a memorial to Carl Rosberg (1923-1996), former professor of Political Science, Director of the Institute of International Studies, and founder of the Center for African Studies at the University of California at Berkeley; and to his student, Judith Geist, who followed in his footsteps with her work in East Africa.
Eligibility: Current UC Berkeley Undergraduate Students with an interest in Africa who will be registered in the 2013-14 academic year (i.e., one must return to campus as a registered student following the research trip). Students with training in African studies and foreign languages, particularly African languages, will be given priority. ONLY UC BERKELEY UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS ARE ELIGIBLE.
Funding: Fellowships of up to $3,000 are available to defray the costs of travel to Africa to conduct research focused on Africa-related topics. Generally, such travel will take place during summer 2013, but other arrangements, such as during winter break 2013-2014, may be possible. If costs are to exceed $3,000, students are expected to find additional funds to cover the balance.
