Offered by IIE in collaboration with the United States International University-Africa (USIU-Africa), the program is funded by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York (CCNY). A total of 471 African Diaspora Fellowships have been awarded for scholars to travel to Africa since the program’s inception in 2013. CADFP exemplifies CCNY's enduring commitment to higher education in Africa. IIE manages and administers the program, including applications, project requests and fellowships. USIU-Africa provides strategic direction through the Advisory Council.

.  Visa costs (if required)

.  Supplemental health insurance coverage

. Have been born in any African country, as evidenced by the biographical data in the scholar's passport;

. Live in the United States or Canada;

. Hold a terminal degree;

. and Be employed at an accredited college or university.
