2013 Philippe Wamba Summer Research Travel Grant
The Department of African and African American Studies is accepting applications for the 2013 Philippe Wamba Summer Research Travel Grant. The Philippe Wamba Summer Research Travel Grant provides funding for research and field work in Africa for Continuing Harvard FAS undergraduate and graduate students. (Students graduating in May 2013 are not eligible for this award.) The recipient is awarded funding of up to $10,000.
This grant was established in 2008 by Danny Rimer in memory of Philippe Wamba. This summer travel award is intended to support a Harvard undergraduate or graduate student carrying out field work or research in Africa. Preference is given to the student who most exemplifies the outstanding academic performance of Philippe Wamba. A 1993 graduate of Harvard College, Philippe Wamba, in his short life, had a profound impact on his fellow students and the faculty of the African and African American Studies Department. Following his graduation, he soon returned to Harvard University where he became the Editor-in-Chief of Africana.com.
