University of California 2022 Ezera Research Fellowship for African Students

The University of California at Berkeley invites applications for the Emeka Kalu Ezera fund for graduate African students.

An endowment has been established in memory of Emeka Kalu Ezera to support graduate students from African countries south of the Sahara at the University of California at Berkeley. The funds from the endowment are assigned to the Center for African Studies to aid student scholars at the graduate level concentrating in African Studies.

For administrative purposes, the Ezera competition is combined with the Rocca Fellowship (See in Program Webpage link below)competition. Ezera recipients may also receive funds from the Rocca endowment. Only one application is necessary. If you are applying for the Emeka Kalu Ezera fellowship, indicate which African country you are from in the appropriate space on the application.
