Ford Foundation Financial Support for Takemi Fellows

In collaboration with the Ford Foundation, we are pleased to announce support for two West African Takemi Fellows for 2018-2019. This grant was made as part of the Foundation’s mission to enhance leadership development and build capacity in the region for research and policy making on sexual and reproductive health. Ford Foundation-supported Fellows will be provided $48,000 to cover living, health insurance, travel, and research expenses.

Residents of West Africa may apply; priority is given to those in Ghana, Nigeria, and Senegal. Applicants should propose a research project that relates to youth development, sexuality, reproductive health and rights, and includes a broader approach that places these issues within the overall developmental aspirations of youth. The proposal must also include analysis of a critical policy problem related to youth sexuality, with the goal of developing a policy brief and a specific plan for implementation.
