Improving Scholarship in Africa
Annual Summer Institutes
The Annual Summer Institute is a two-week residency programme for doctoral students and early-career doctoral degree holders anywhere in the world. The sessions are anchored by an impressive number of senior scholars from Nigeria, Africa and the Global North engaging a wide range of themes and issues that are designed to deepen the understanding of research and teaching mission in the academy.
The premise of this initiative is to build on the scholars in the academy whose research potentials can be further enhanced by an exposure to in-depth learning and mentoring of fellows of the Institute by facilitating interaction and interdisciplinary engagement with the impressive mass of senior scholars we have assembled for this project.
Connecting Fellows to Opportunities
One of our main goals is to not only create opportunities for advancement for the scholars that come around, we also work to connect them to great opportunities around the world that will help move their careers forward.
