African Futures Research Leadership Program: The Alliance for African Partnership (AAP) launched the African Futures Research Leadership Program in Fall 2019. The competitive postdoctoral program targets early career women researchers from the nine 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 also participate in a structured academic advancement program while building bridges and lasting connections with MSU and across their cohort. They also participate in the Future Africa Research Leadership Program at the University of Pretoria, which 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. We are now accepting applications for our 2020/2021 cohort.
