This is a program for graduating 4th-year university students, scholars and professionals to spend up to two years in a study program, research program, or professional development program in the United States. This program is designed primarily to strengthen African universities through higher degree training for faculty members. A secondary purpose is to strengthen other educational, cultural, and professional institutions (such as museums, libraries, independent research institutes, and ministries of education, planning, or science and technology). Awards are available for the following types of programs:

(1) up to two years in a study program at a university in the U.S. for a Masters (MA) degree or a doctorate (PH.D) degree;

(2) up to one year of independent research at a U.S. university under the guidance of an American professor; or

(3) up to one year of professional development in the U.S. in professional fields (such as medicine or law) or creative fields (such as fine arts, the performing arts, music, and literature).

Funding is provided by the Government of the United States of America through the U.S. Department of State and varies depending on the program.
