AERC - African Economic Research Consortium

Collaborative PhD Programme in Economics - PhD Fellowships

AERC offers a limited number of fellowships granted each year to students seeking to pursue a career in economic management, research and/or teaching at a public institution in sub-Saharan Africa. Priority is accorded to candidates who are on staff development in the Collaborative Master’s Programme. Four universities are eligible to host doctoral students under the collaborative programme (Cape Town, Dar es Salaam, Ibadan and Yaounde II) and four others are also able to award, but not host degrees (Wits, Nairobi, Benin, Cocody).
