Grants to this Grantee
for systems to develop alumni engagement for the Regional Institute for Population Studies program
for support of the Regional Institute for Population Studies program
The Regional Institute for Population Studies at the University of Ghana is a center of excellence for interdisciplinary research and training in population sciences in Africa. Support for the Institute’s program will enable it to invest in the development of its junior faculty through seed funding for collaboration with scholars at the Population Research Institute at Pennsylvania State University (also a Hewlett grantee). This grant will provide stipends for current doctoral students and funding for a graduate student seminar including pedagogy, methodology, advanced statistical approaches, and research topics. The Institute will also provide a "re-entry" grant for a graduating doctoral student to return to Nigeria with funds to begin research.
