STAARS Fellows

STAARS Fellows are paired with faculty and research staff affiliated with Cornell University, with whom they jointly author a paper on a topic of mutual interest relating to structural transformation in sub-Saharan Africa. STAARS Fellows’ research uses high-quality panel datasets, including the as the World Bank LSMS-ISA data. In addition to producing high-quality publishable research, the STAARS fellowships are designed explicitly to develop and expand professional networks of talented early-career African scholars. STAARS fellowships are sponsored by the Partnership for Economic Policy (PEP) and the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions and Markets (PIM).
