China in Africa: The Real Story

SAIS-CARI Fellowships: Three Weeks Left to Apply

Deborah Brautigam

The China Africa Research Initiative at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS-CARI) announces a call for the second round of applications to the SAIS-CARI Fellows program. SAIS-CARI Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis or by invitation to researchers, policy-makers, or journalists who wish to spend a concentrated period of time (1 to 2 months) writing or doing field research on an under-explored policy issue related to China’s African engagement.

We particularly encourage teams of two people, one of whom has extensive first-hand experience in Africa and the other of whom is fluent in Chinese, to propose research topics that could be investigated in Africa, drawing on each researcher’s comparative advantage. All projects must be policy-relevant and based on case studies and fieldwork.

In this round we especially welcome proposals that focus on China's energy engagement in Africa (petroleum, natural gas, solar and hydropower, electricity projects). We are also interested in case studies of manufacturing (including mineral processing and oil refining) or agriculture investments, with a focus on technology transfer, training, and local skills development). In addition, we have an interest in proposals that pair analysis of cases of Chinese investment, aid or finance in Africa with that from the United States. 

Applications are due by 11:59 pm EST on October 15, 2015 for a start date between November 15, 2015 and April 30, 2016. Decisions will be announced in early November 2015. The SAIS-CARI Fellows Program is supported by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York.
