Awards and Honors


Dr. Komla Aggor has been awarded a fellowship from the Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program (CADFP). As one of 43 professors selected this year for this fellowship, Aggor will work with the University of Ghana on a special project, including co-curriculum development with the Department of Modern Languages. Aggor will collaborate with UG’s Dr. Joanna Boampong to revise and enhance the curriculum of the Spanish undergraduate and graduate programs. He is expected to help create a balanced program focused on interdisciplinary collaboration and also evaluate and fine-tune the curriculum as well as the research agenda of the university’s recently established Center for Latin American Studies. The Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Program, founded in 2013, is a program that allows African institutions in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda to host African-born scholars to build enrollment at the host institutions and develop long-term, mutually beneficial collaborations among universities in Africa, the United States and Canada. The CADFP is funded by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York and managed by the Institute of International Education in collaboration with the United States International University-Africa.
