Remote Podcast Production Fellowship With Ufahamu Africa

Researchers, journalists, practitioners, and podcasters are invited to apply for a ten-month non-resident fellowship. Selected fellows will have the opportunity to guest host podcast episodes, identify future guests and themes, create partnerships, and more. The fellowship will run between September 2021 and May 2022. Fellows will receive a stipend of $3,500. The deadline is on Tuesday 31st August 2021.

Ufahamu Africa is a podcast about life and politics on the African continent, co-hosted by Kim Yi Dionne, professor of political science at the University of California, Riverside, and Rachel Beatty Riedl, professor of government at Cornell University.

The Ufahamu Africa non-resident fellows will be engaged remotely for ten months to produce the equivalent of five single- or dual-language podcast episodes.

Fellows will also be asked to join the editorial team to shape season six content, dissemination ideas, mashup partnerships, and other podcast production decisions. 

Fellows will receive a stipend to support their internet data costs and their time spent on the fellowship of $3,500 USD.

Ufahamu Africa non-resident fellows will be considered members of the production team and will be invited to attend relevant conferences (African Studies Association, Working Group on African Political Economy, others) as possible with current travel restrictions.

The deadline is on Tuesday 31st August 2021.
