We are excited to announce the winners of the first round of the 2015 SAIS-CARI Fellowship 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. Research projects will start between June 1, 2015 and October 30, 2015. The SAIS-CARI Fellows Program is supported by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York.
