The fellowship program provides support for African early-career scientists to conduct research at institutions outside of their home country for a period of up to 6 months. The program aims to provide opportunities for early-career scientists to gain valuable research experience, develop new skills and networks, and contribute to the advancement of knowledge in the area of past global changes.

The fellowship provides support for travel expenses, living expenses, and research expenses during the fellowship period. Fellows are also eligible for a small research grant to support their research activities.

The program aims to give limited support for travel and subsistence to early-career researchers from African countries (PhD students and postdocs at African institutions), who are interested in gaining experience in another African country. The final goal is to contribute to the development of collaborative research and the promotion of the paleoscience network within Africa.
