Eligibility The purpose of the Hobart Houghton Fellowship is to promote work relevant to the economic problems of the Eastern Cape, and which could contribute to the development of the region. The criterion of “relevance to the Eastern Cape” is to be interpreted broadly. It may in some cases involve fieldwork within the Province, as for instance in a study of rural households or unemployment. In other cases, for example industrialisation in the region, the key to understanding might lie largely in developments at national and international levels. In all cases the aim of the fellowship is to support fundamental research, yielding results which are of more than local or regional interest. The basic requirement is that the research deals with significant issues which are directly or indirectly relevant to the Eastern Cape. Eligibility Prospective Fellows should have had research experience, and hold at least a Masters degree in Economics or Agricultural Economics. They should have a sound knowledge of economic analysis and be capable of independent, innovative work. Candidates may either be established scholars (possibly on sabbatical leave) or young, promising economists. Value and Conditions of the Award The amount of the award will be determined on an annual basis. The typical package includes: * Return direct economy class airfare from the Fellow's place of residence. * University accommodation with electricity and water included. * R5000.00 monthly cash stipend to supplement the Fellow's usual source of income, or if you are accompanied by a partner R7500.00 per month cash stipend. * If the Fellow accepts the appointment for at least four months and is accompanied by a partner, the partner's return airfare will also be paid. Limited funds will be available for travel and other research expenses. The Fellow will be expected to reside in Grahamstown, and will be an honorary member of staff of the University for the duration of the Fellowship. At the conclusion of the Fellowship, the Fellow will be required to present a full report on the work undertaken. Rhodes University may reverse the right to publish any work accomplished during the Fellowship. If the Fellow publishes, there must be suitable acknowledgment of both the Fellowship and Rhodes University in any publications.
