Matasa Fellows Network - 10 Fellowships

There is an increasing need to connect the work of new PhD students at post graduate research training programmes to the policy and dynamics of policy processes. To address the important gap The MasterCard Foundation and Institute of Development Studies have joined forces to launch the Matasa Fellows Network. This initiative will equip young African researchers with the skills and commitment to bring their research into policy processes that address the challenges of young people and employment in Africa.

Each Matasa Fellow will receive academic support and a small bursary to produce a high quality synthesis paper and related policy brief relating to the broad theme of youth employment and entrepreneurship in Africa.
