The Department of Occupational Therapy is pleased to share that OT PhD Student Joana Nana Serwaa Akrofi has been selected as the recipient of the New York University Africa House Thoyer Fellowship to support her research.

The NYU Africa House Fellowship of $2,500 is awarded to two outstanding graduate students to support Africa-focused study and research in the fields of economics, political economy, and related disciplines. Fellowships are used to cover travel costs, living expenses, tuition, books, research expenses, and other relevant expenses while studying or pursuing research at New York University. The Africa House Thoyer Fellowship is rooted in the idea that development is more likely to occur where there is sustained, sound management of the economy, and that such management is more likely where there is an active, well-informed group of development experts conducting policy-relevant research.
