The Alliance for African Partnership (AAP) will establish its African Futures Research Leadership Program in Fall 2019. The competitive visiting scholar program will target early career female researchers from the eight AAP member institutions to be jointly supervised by faculty members from MSU and their home institution in research for impact, writing of scholarly and/or policy publications, dissemination of research results and grant proposals.
Early career researchers will also participate in a structured academic advancement program while building bridges and lasting connections with MSU and across their cohort.
They will also participate in the Future Africa Research Leadership Program at the University of Pretoria, which will provide them with training in the areas of thought leadership, team development, research development, engagement and collaboration, while building south-south collaboration with other African researchers.
The home insitution mentor will visit MSU for one week of collaboration discussions. Towards the end of the program, MSU faculty mentors will spend one week at the early career researcher’s home institution to continue research collaboration with the researcher and their African co-mentor.
