A $10 cash donation is suggested to help support the Africa Center, which invests in innovative and interdisciplinary research and engagement that cuts across conventional disciplines to address global environmental and sustainability issues in Africa.

The Africa Center, housed in the School of Global Environmental Sustainability, aims to celebrate the accomplishments and ongoing work of those that have research and studies in Africa at Colorado State University.

The Student Research Fellowship awards student commitment to African research excellence and impact on the world. The Center has had another wonderful year supporting these activities and looks forward to continued collaboration with those that work towards more sustainable African ecosystems and societies.
