Each January, MMUF hosts a ten-day experiential learning program for fellows in Cape Town, South Africa. Fellows and coordinators from all MMUF member institutions are invited to apply.(Please see the accompanying January Program agenda from last year’s event for more detailed information about the structure of the program. All participants will receive an updated agenda once accepted).
The intention of the January Program is to broaden American and South African participants’ understandings of the South African socioeconomic, racial, cultural, historical and environmental landscape through critical inquiry, reflection and debate, while connecting their insights to the mission of the MMUF program as a whole. Please note that although we consider fellows’ and coordinators’ research interests as part of the selection criteria, the January Program is not a research program, and participants should not expect to have significant time for independent research during the Program.
