African studies are gradually going into extinction and African leaders are not really concerned about the true culture.

The major aim and reason for this movement is to bring out great scholars who will go on research on the proper way to learn the African studies. The scholarship will make the scholar a Fellow of  African Cluster Centre, Lagos.

the accepted candidates will be expected to engage with the above theme through a process of re-examining basic assumptions and querying them with multidisciplinary approaches to enhance, uphold or dismiss present knowledge about Africans while demonstrating the multiple-ness in discourses about Africa.
