About – The BIEA have run the Graduate Attachment Scheme (GAS) for many years, supporting a large network of early-career scholars who are interested in research based in Eastern Africa. This academic year (2021-2022), BIEA and the RSC are partnering to offer three attaché positions for refugee / displaced scholars who are interested in graduate-level studies. The three attachés will participate in BIEA research activities and trainings, and work closely with an accomplished mentor to support an ongoing research project related to a humanitarian topic in Eastern Africa. They will also develop research ideas of their own. Each successful scholar will receive a £1,000 GBP stipend to support them during this time. During the current Covid pandemic all Attachments are taking place digitally.
