Funded by DFID-ESRC the Urban ARK Elijah Agevi Fellowship Scheme aims to facilitate exchange and learning between programme partners. The fellowship programme is named in memory of Elijah Agevi and to honour his contributions to Urban ARK and more broadly his role as a bridge between research and policy in Kenya as a senior policy advisor to government on urban issues and more. The fellowship is especially designed for early career researchers and policy actors, including local activists. The key aim for any application is that there should be a discrete output. 

Preference will be given to early career researchers and practitioners/policy actors, including local activists. Applicants would usually be associated with one of the Urban ARK programme's partner institutions.

Preference is given for applicants from sub-Saharan Africa, but none are excluded. Each fellow will be sponsored to spend up to two months in an international exchange with one of the consortium partners producing a clearly defined output, such as a co-authored academic paper.
Applications where the host or sending institute can provide some match funding or support in kind would be advantageous, and this should be stated in the application.

How to apply:

Those interested in applying for this Visiting Fellowship Scheme should contact Urban ARK through the Contact Page on this website. Applicants will be required to submit a CV (including 2 named academic referees), a letter of support from the intended host organisation, and a covering letter (max 1500 words) explaining their interest in the fellowship, relevance of their work to Urban ARK, intended outputs and collaborations through the fellowship.
