Applications are open for RSC-BIEA Fellowship for Refugee and Displaced Scholars. The Refugee-Led Research Hub (RLRH) at Oxford’s Refugee Studies Centre (RSC) is launching a 12-month fellowship for refugees and other displaced scholars who are interested in graduate-level study in the field of Refugee and Forced Migration Studies (RFMS). It will be run in collaboration with British Institute in Eastern Africa (BIEA).

RSC-BIEA Fellowship for Refugee and Displaced Scholars will include teaching, mentorship, and professional development activities provided by specialists in the field. Activities will span three terms of study and research (Oct 2021–June 2022) followed by a 3- month professional placement with RLRH, RSC, BIEA, or other academic and research institutes.


  • Fellows will hold affiliated membership statuses with both the RSC and BIEA; and will be awarded a certificate from the University of Oxford upon completion.
  • Fellows will receive a stipend of 750 USD per month for the duration of the fellowship.


  • Have lived experience of forced displacement (e.g., as a refugee, asylum seeker, IDP, stateless person, former refugee, or another category).
  • Live in East Africa or the Horn (e.g., Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Burundi, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Somalia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Sudan, South Sudan).
    refugee/displaced scholars living elsewhere and with an interest in displacement issues in Africa are also encouraged to apply.
  • Have completed a BA degree in a field in the Social Sciences or Humanities (e.g., International Relations, International Development, Politics, Economics, Sociology, Anthropology, History, Law, Literature, etc.), or have comparable experience (e.g., have previous professional experience in the humanitarian sector, participation in academic/professional research projects, completion of training in related fields, etc.).
  • Have demonstrated interest in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies or related fields.
