Apply to teach Africa’s next generation of entrepreneurial, innovative leaders
Founded in 2002, Ashesi University is one of Africa’s most respected and innovative undergraduate universities, known for producing graduates of outstanding integrity, initiative, and skill.


Do you qualify?
Our competitive Archer-Cornfield fellowship, modeled on the Fulbright program, provides a generous stipend, accommodations, and transportation expenses for candidates who wish to devote a year to teaching undergraduates in Africa, with opportunities for research and scholarship. We seek recent masters and doctoral graduates in electronic and electrical, mechanical, and computer engineering, and computer science (including information systems), as well as emeritus professors and faculty on sabbatical. Applicants should have an affinity for Ashesi’s instructional model, which combines seminars, labs, and hands-on projects that address complex, real-world problems. 


Beautiful, modern campus in hills above Accra
Our modern labs, classrooms, workspaces, and housing sit on 100 beautifully landscaped acres, about 25 km outside of Accra, Ghana’s capital. Ghana is a friendly and stable English-speaking democracy, with a population that highly values education.


Teach motivated, diverse students
Our 1,000 students are passionately committed to creating a better future for their home continent. They are selected from across Africa, with diverse religious, ethnic, national, and economic backgrounds. Around half are women, and about half receive financial aid.


Learn from and contribute to our dedicated faculty team
Ashesi University is an award-winning, not-for-profit, independent four-year university with a curriculum shaped by some of the world’s finest universities. Our partnerships in research, instruction, and student exchanges span the globe.  Our mission is to educate a new generation of ethical and entrepreneurial leaders in Africa.
