Doctoral Fellowships that follow a split site model, lasting for 12 months or less and carry a maximum award of $16,500 USD, and for those undertaking doctoral research at an African university to enable them to undertake work at a host institution. Funded by IDRC, ACCFP was started in 2007 by the African Academy of Science (AAS) and global change SysTem for Analysis, Research and Training (START) and the Institute of Research Assessment (IRA, Dar es Salaam). ACCFP offered experiential learning, education, research and training opportunities to African professionals, researchers and graduate students that enhance their capabilities for advancing and applying knowledge for climate change adaptation in Africa. In 2008 ACCFP approved 45 fellowships (from nearly 300 applications) to candidates from 18 African countries. These fellowships were either focused on policy studies, or on teaching climate change. Fellowships have also been offered to pursue doctoral and postdoctoral studies. In its next two rounds of awards (2011/2012), the ACCFP will offer three types of Fellowships: 1. Adaptation Science Fellowships 2. Adaptation Policy Fellowships 3. Adaptation Teaching Fellowships in partnerships with START and with support from Climate Change Adaptation in Africa (CCAA).
