Born on April 30, 1959, Emeka was the first of four sons of Professor Kalu and Mrs Onuma Ezera, who came from Ohafia, Imo State, Nigeria. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University in 1981 and in 1982 earned a Master’s degree in International Economic Relations from the London School of Economics. At the University of California at Berkeley he earned a Masters in Political Science in 1985, followed by a Masters in Public Policy in 1987.

In 1989, Emeka began work on his doctoral dissertation in Political Science at Berkeley: An Institutional Approach to the Implementation of Structural Adjustment Policies: The Nigerian Case.

Scholarship Requirements

In order to be eligible to apply for the scholarship, applicants must:

  • The Ezera Research Fellowship gives priority to graduate students from West Africa who show exceptional promise of advancing scholarship in African Studies in the social sciences, humanities, and public policy and who demonstrate strong leadership potential.
  • Students from other African regions are eligible and are encouraged to apply.
  • Students must have been accepted for admission at the University of California at Berkeley when they apply and must be enrolled before funds may be dispersed to them.
  • The fellowship is not available to students who are permanent residents or citizens of the United States.
  • A total of no more than two years of support will be provided to a recipient of this fellowship; applications for the second year of support will be considered de novo along with other applications for that year.

Scholarship Duration and Reward

Funds may be requested for maintenance, travel, or research costs, as appropriate to enhance pre-dissertation and dissertation research on Africa. Ezera funds may be used to supplement, but not substitute for, other grants. Students are encouraged to apply to other sources, including the Rocca grant.

Currently, grants from the Ezera fund will be in the $500 to $1000 range. In making awards, the Center adheres to the cap on stipends set by the Graduate Division, which in 2016 was $34,000 – combined for all fellowships awarded.
