Cadbury Research Fellowship Scheme

University of Birmingham

The Department of African Studies and Anthropology has run an annual Cadbury research programme for the since 2002. The programme contains three elements. Having selected its research theme for the year, the department opens a call for visiting fellowship applications, and selects early career scholars who are normally based in African institutions.

When visiting fellows arrive in the department, they join in a series of developmental activities which are organised around the annual research theme and are open to members of academic staff and postgraduate students. These activities may include presentations of work-in-progress, reading groups, writing groups, speaker events, research methods sessions, and one-to-one meetings. The final element of the programme is an international conference, at which fellows present their work, alongside other speakers from around the world. The department is grateful to the Cadbury family for its bequest which allows us to fund this annual programme.

Benefits of a Cadbury Fellowship

The Cadbury fellows will have time to use the University’s excellent library resources, discuss their work with academic staff and postgraduate students at DASA, and contribute to the intellectual life of the department by participating in the numerous events that will be organised here during the period of the fellowships. Fellowships will cover return air-fare, accommodation and living costs for a period of six weeks.
