Kenya is among countries that have been selected by The Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program to host 55 African-born scholars. Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda will also be hosting the visiting fellows as they aim to foster relations and research with local universities.

Most of the fellows teach in U.S universities and many of them have partnered with their country of birth for academic projects. The fellows will work with their hosts for up to three months on different projects. They are being funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Institute of International Education (IIE) while the United States International University of Africa (USIU-A) of Nairobi will provide ‘strategic’ guidance during the programme.

University World News reports that most of the projects that have been selected to be undertaken under the programme are from Kenya. Of 54 projects, 18 are from Kenya. This is largely due to private institutions in the country coming forward led by USIU-A.

Some of the projects that will be undertaken include; controlling malaria, strengthening peace and conflict studies, archiving African indigenous knowledge among others. The collaborative projects will see a stronger relation between African scholars in the Diaspora and those in local universities.
