Yale’s Jackson Institute Offers New Fellowships for African Students

yaleThe Jackson Institute for Global Affairs at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, has announced the establishment of two new fellowship programs that will offer financial aid for students from Africa or students who have shown interest in the study of Africa.

The Jackson Institute currently enrolls about 25 students in its master’s degree program in global affairs. About half of these students are from outside the United States.

The new Peel Fellowship will be awarded to students from sub-Saharan Africa. The Chang Fellowship will be given to students from Africa or students who have shown a demonstrated interest in Africa.

The new fellowships are part of a continuing effort to increase Yale’s involvement with the African continent. The Yale Africa Initiative, launched in 2013, aims to sharpen Yale’s focus on Africa. Its goals are to expand scholarship on Africa at Yale, to increase the number of African students at Yale while securing support for financial aid for their studies, and to establish mutually beneficial partnerships between Yale and African institutions.
