The African Humanities Program (AHP) seeks to reinvigorate the humanities in Africa through fellowship competitions and related activities in Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda. In partnership with the Carnegie Corporation of New York, which has generously provided funding, AHP offers African scholars an integrated set of opportunities to develop individual capacities and to promote formation of scholarly networks. The African Humanities Program supports the Carnegie Corporation’s efforts to develop and retain African academics at universities in Africa. 

In 2019 Carnegie Corporation announced a grant commemorating the ACLS Centennial for an extension of AHP activities. This grant will support two new fellowship competitions (2019-2020 and 2020-2021).  The new competitions will be for postdoctoral fellowships only.
Information for applicants and application forms will be available on the ACLS website by July 2019.
