West African Research Association (WARA) Residency Fellowships 2019 for West African Scholars (USD$3,500 Grants)

آخر موعد للتسجيل: 11:59pm FEBRUARY 1, 2019

In the interest of enhancing transatlantic exchange and collaboration, the جمعية غرب افريقيا للبحوث, with funding from the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the US State Department, offers الإقامات for WARA member institutions to host a West African Scholar on their campus.

Each residency will last 4-8 weeks and will provide the visiting scholar with opportunities for library research, guest lecturing, and/or collaborative work with American colleagues. Please note that residencies are short-term exchanges and are not meant to fill faculty positions.


WARA will pay the round-trip travel costs of the selected scholar as well as a stipend of $3500 to help cover meals and local transportation costs. Host institutions are encouraged to provide additional support in the form of housing, office space, library privileges, laboratory facilities, or other supports for the period of the residency.

All applications must be submitted online and will include:

  • اسم ومعلومات الاتصال لممثل المؤسسة المضيف وارا
  • A 50-80 word abstract of the proposed residency, clearly indicating the purpose of the Residency (clearly indicate the host institution contact person)
  • A proposal of no more than six (6) double-spaced pages profiling the visiting scholar, his or her proposed residency activities, how the residency will contribute to the goals of WARA, the expected impact or outcome of the residency, and any support that the host institution is prepared to contribute
  • السيرة الذاتية للباحث الزائر
  • رسالة اهتمام من الباحث
  • خطاب دعم من مسؤول ذي صلة (عميد، رئيس قسم، وما إلى ذلك) في المؤسسة المضيفة
  • Proof of citizenship in the form of a copy of the scholar’s passport (please note: only scholars who are eligible for non-immigrant visas to the U.S. will be considered)

Please note that applications can only be made by WARA member institutions for the purpose of bringing a specific scholar to their campus. Applications from individual scholars will not be accepted.


Upon completion of the residency, residents are required to submit, in collaboration with their host institution, a detailed report of their work and findings. This report will subsequently be published in the biannual نشرة WARA الإخبارية. Please direct inquiries to [البريد الإلكتروني محمي]

التمويل لل WARA Residency Program is provided by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the US Department of State through a grant from the Council of American Overseas Research Centers.
