Announcement of the AHP Grant Application Preparation Workshop

This is to invite Humanities scholars in Uganda to participate in the African Humanities Programme (AHP) application preparation workshop for the 2020/2021 Application Year. The workshop will take place on 18th-19 November 2020.                    

It is over a decade since the AHP and its sponsoring organ, The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) committed to developing and promoting academic excellence in the Humanities in five Sub-Saharan African countries: Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda. Mentorship of graduate students and early career scholars, as well as strengthening networks among Humanities scholars on the continent, are among the key objectives of the AHP.

It is in this regard that the School of Languages, Literature and Communication, in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHUSS), is organizing a two day Application-preparation Workshop, from 18th -19th November 2020. This is a blended workshop. In the interest of regional collaboration and networking, some of the mentors are from the partner countries.

This workshop is free of charge and open to all participants in Ugandan universities. It particularly targets applicants for the 2020/2021 Call for the AHP Grant Application. The participants will be exposed to the AHP grant application rubrics and proposal writing. This is also to help improve the quality and quantity of AHP applications from Uganda.
