Carleton University 2023 Queen Elizabeth Scholarship for African Students

As the first cohort of the Carleton University Queen Elizabeth Scholarship for Advanced Scholars from West Africa (QES-AS-WA) wraps up, we are delighted to announce the second and final call for applications for the second cohort scheduled for 2023-24. The program Wurin ta na yin rubutu – Her own room to write, which runs until October 2024, is open to West African women in the final stage of their PhD program, postdoctoral researchers, and early career academics affiliated to institutions, to participate in a research acceleration experience.

 Scholars must be registered for their PhD at a West African university; postdoctoral fellows/researchers or early career PhD scholars must be working at a West African university.

As part of the award, successful candidates will be granted access to Carleton’s library resources. The scholars are expected to participate in workshops designed to augment research skills including writing, publishing, data analysis, and grant applications. Scholars will also benefit from joint research projects with their mentors and the many talks and lectures hosted by the Institute of African Studies (IAS) as well as by other departments and community partners.
