The I3D program funds scholars to spend 6 weeks working on an approved research project at the faculty supervisor’s home institution. I3D scholars from Africa work with faculty at a North American institution, and American I3D scholars work with faculty at African institutions.


To be considered for the I3D Research Scholars Exchange Program, participants must be nominated by the ICI3D faculty. Nominated participants are expected to develop a project proposal in collaboration with an ICI3D faculty supervisor of their choosing and can submit their application for consideration by meeting any of the upcoming deadlines. Application instructions are included in the letter of nomination sent to nominated participants.

Note to applicants: The I3D exchange timeline outlines what is expected of I3D scholars before, during, and after the exchange visit. Submission of an application will be considered an indication of your commitment to meet these expectations if your application is accepted.
