Leakey Foundation 2023 Baldwin Fellowship Program for Developing Countries

The Leakey Foundation offers Baldwin Fellowship Research Grants/training for applicants from developing countries in the field of human origins, including paleoanthropology, primate behavior, and studies of modern hunter-gatherer groups to study at Home and host institutions. Eligible countries include Ethiopia, Eritrea, Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, Somalia, South Africa, Sudan, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Zambia and the Republic of Congo.

The Franklin Mosher Baldwin Fellowship program for developing countries is based on a realistic assessment of needs and priorities. Many developing nations possess extraordinary resources in the field of prehistory. The stewardship and careful use of these assets is a task of international importance. By enabling bright young scholars to obtain graduate education, the Leakey Foundation is helping to equip these individuals to assume a leadership role in the future of paleoanthropology.
