Fellowship opportunities will be provided to a total of 18 individuals; Post-Doctoral scientists (7) who are based in African institutions and who are working on relevant research and Doctoral (7) and Masters students (4) currently enrolled in and conducting research related to climate change and adaptation as part of a Doctoral and Masters Program at an African university. When awarded to a Post-Doctoral candidate, an Adaptation Science Fellowship enables its recipient to travel to a suitable Host Institution and work under the supervision of an established, highly qualified mentor in order to strengthen specific skills in research and/or teaching in regards to climate change and climate change adaptation. For doctoral students, the Adaptation Science Fellowship supports a targeted and clearly defined component or activity of the PhD research by enabling travel to a Host Institution for training in relevant research methodologies or tools, participation in supervised research and/or access to data, models or tools that would raise the quality and value of the dissertation results. When awarded to other postgraduate candidates, the Adaptation Science Fellowship supports relevant research projects with clearly defined and targeted tasks, to be carried out in residence at an appropriate ACCFP Host Institution.

These Fellows will receive up to USD 14,000 for them to conduct their research for up to a year. Expected outputs for this activity include:

(i.) Fellows interim and final technical and financial reports, theses, publications and conference presentations, among others
