Beasiswa Canadian Commonwealth Scholarship Program

The Canadian Commonwealth Scholarship Program is celebrating 50 years! Since the plan’s inception in 1959, the Government of Canada has provided scholarships of excellence to all member countries of the Commonwealth. The CCSP goal is to promote Canadian values and identity around the world and to help meet the human capital needs of developing countries.

Canada also played a leadership role in the establishment of the international Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan and is the largest contributor to this program after the United Kingdom.
Description

* Graduate Students Exchanges (GSEP) are hosted by Canadian institutions for a period of five or six months and provide up to $10,000 to cover transportation, living and other related expenses during the students’ stay in Canada.

Student application process

Students interested in this scholarship program should contact their home institution to make their interest known, and to find out if there is an institutional collaboration or exchange agreement with a Canadian institution. The Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) provides a database of international exchange agreements which, while not exhaustive, does provide a list of some existing agreements.

An institutional exchange agreement is desirable, however, where no agreement yet exists, research applications by students which may result in a new collaboration between professors from a Canadian and foreign university will be considered.

Beasiswa African Guest Researchers’ Scholarship Programme 2011, Sweden

The purpose of the programme
One important task of the Nordic Africa Institute is to establish and maintain relations with African research communities. This is inter alia carried out through a Guest Researchers’ Scholarship Programme, the aim of which is to provide opportunities for its participants to pursue their own research projects, thereby indirectly strengthening the academic milieux in African countries, and promoting scholarly exchange with Nordic research communities.

Who can apply ?
The Guest Researchers’ Scholarship Programme is directed at senior scholars in Africa engaged in research on/about the African continent with a proven track record of extensive post-graduate research experiences. We would especially like to encourage women to apply for these scholarships.

Applications are invited from scholars preferably with research projects related to the following current research clusters at the Institute :

1. Agrarian Change, Property and Resources
2. Conflict, Displacement and Transformation
3. Globalization, Trade and Regional Integration
4. Urban Dynamics

Please see this website for more details on the research clusters. Applicants are requested to identify which research theme they want to be attached to.

Grants and facilities

The Guest Researcher’s scholarship includes a return air-fare (Economy Class), accommodation, a subsistence allowance of SEK (Swedish kronor) 300 (approx. USD 40) a day plus an installation grant of SEK 2,500 (approx. USD 350), a shared office and free photocopying facilities up to a maximum of 1,000 copies. Guest Researchers have access to a computer/MS Word at the office and have to do their own typing.

The maximum duration of the stay is 90 days. To be entitled to the travel costs, the Guest Researcher has to stay for at least two months.

Please note that most academic institutions in the Nordic countries, including the Nordic Africa Institute, are closed or at least running at a reduced capacity during the periods 15 June–15 August and 15 December–15 January. Applicants are thus asked to avoid these periods.

The Institute’s library is specialized in literature on contemporary Africa. Guest researchers also have access to the Uppsala University Library, the Dag Hammarskjöld Library and the Library of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.

Expected commitments

As a part of the exchange between the Guest Researchers and the Nordic institutions, each Guest Researcher is expected to make a lecture tour to at least one other Nordic country. Train or special fare air tickets and accommodation will be provided for this trip.

Sometimes, the Institute also invites the Guest Researcher to write a short article for its website. In addition the Guest Researcher is invited to produce a discussion paper to be published within the Institute’s publications’ series. The draft of the discussion paper should be presented preferably in a public forum prior to the end of the stay in Uppsala.

The application should contain

* a complete application form (pdf) (3 copies)
* an up-to-date curriculum vitæ (3 copies)
* a well elaborated research proposal outlining the main features of the research topic pursued during the period in Uppsala, and the expected result (3 copies)
* copies of and/or references to the applicant’s writings
* a letter of support from his/her Head of Department or other senior scholar in the same field.

Please note that incomplete applications will not be considered.

Deadline

Applications for positions in 2011 must reach the Institute by 1 April, 2010 . Please note that airmail from Africa may take several weeks to reach Sweden. Selection of Guest Researchers will take place during April–May 2010.
