NiFESS Membership

Graduate Membership

The NiFESS Graduate membership is designed to engage graduates of Social Sciences from across Nigerian universities on multidisciplinary topics of pressing local and global concerns. The membership seeks to foster the development of a new generation of researchers and professionals who are interested in policy-relevant topics of long-range importance and who are willing to become key members of a bilateral and global research network built around such topics.

The NiFESS graduate membership is the Intermediary membership cadre of the Nigerian Federation of Social Scientists, this membership cadre is categorized by Post-graduate students of social sciences across Nigerian Universities and beyond.

The NiFESS graduate membership integrates a Research Support system for individuals and groups of post-graduates for brilliant ideas and research projects, as well allows grants and special funds for graduate research projects for the apex terminal class. Applications are welcome from every graduate student (When applications are open). The objectives of the program are to foster high quality research in the social sciences and related disciplines, to build new collaborative networks of Nigerian Social researchers across the world, to bring new data and new data resources to the attention of those researchers, and to obtain from them a commitment to a comparative or transnational line of inquiry.

Successful applicants will be those individuals whose work and interests match these program goals. NiFESS graduate members are expected to demonstrate a long-term commitment to these goals by participating in program activities over the course of their studies.
