The Center for Effective Global Action (CEGA) invites researchers from East Africa and Anglophone West Africa interested in developing their skills in impact evaluation and implementation science to apply for a four-month fellowship (sabbatical) at the University of California Berkeley, to be completed during Fall 2022 (August – December) or Spring 2023 (January – May) academic semester.
CEGA is a hub for research on global development. Headquartered at the University of California, Berkeley, our large, interdisciplinary network–including a growing number of scholars from low and middle-income countries–identifies and tests innovations designed to reduce poverty and promote development. CEGA researchers use rigorous evaluations, tools from data science, and new measurement technologies to assess the impacts of large-scale social and economic development programs. Through careful matchmaking, competitive grant-making, and research dissemination activities, CEGA ensu... read more
CEGA Non-Resident Fellows will be engaged remotely for 12 weeks, at about 15-20 hours per week. Fellows will receive a stipend to support their internet data costs and their time spent on the fellowship. CEGA Non-Resident Fellows will be considered a member of the East Africa Social Science Translation Collaborative (EASST) network. They will also be invited to join the Network of Impact Evaluation Researchers in Africa (NIERA), an association of African scholars seeking to advance decision-focused impact evaluation of development programs through capacity building, evidence generation and policy outreach.
To be eligible, researchers must be a national of an East or Anglophone West African country (Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, Burundi, South Sudan, Uganda, the Gambia, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana, Nigeria, and Cameroon) who hold a staff or student position at a research institution, university, or other organization headquartered in one of these countries. If currently enrolled in a PhD program outside the African continent, scholars may complete their PhD before their return. Applicants must already have a PhD or be working towards a PhD, except in the case that they are directly referred by a EASST or DIWA fellow.
To respond to the 2022-2023 CEGA Visiting Fellowship Request for Applications (RFA), please submit the following information and documents through this Submittable portal by Monday, March 7, at 5 pm GMT:
