Matasa Fellows Network


The Mastercard Foundation and Institute of Development Studies are delighted to announce the launch of The Matasa Fellows Network. This new and exciting initiative seeks to develop a cohort of young African researchers with the skills and commitment to engage in policy-oriented research around the challenges of young people and employment in Africa. Its aim is to contribute to the development of outstanding young researchers who will ultimately become leaders in their chosen fields. To kick-start the Network, ten fellowships will be awarded in 2016.


Each Matasa Fellow will produce a high quality synthesis paper and related policy brief. The synthesis papers will be published in a special issue of the IDS Bulletin.
