Thank you to all the wonderful young historians who applied for our Summer Fellowship 2021. Applications have now closed.
The high number and impressive quality of applications has been amazing! We are confident that the future of African and African diasporic history is in safe hands with the next generation!
Our Director, Apeike Umolu, notes that ‘applicants showed an interest in a wide range of areas in Black history from local to world histories, ancient to post-colonial histories. It is great to see the large number of applications with bibliographies that reflect the multiplicity of pan-African thought and the global Black experience’.
We look forward to interviewing top applicants over the next week and to welcoming the chosen Fellows in July.
Applications for our Associate Fellowship starting this July are closing on 15 May.
