Last year the programme recruited about 700 outstanding young leaders from Sub-Saharan Africa with the opportunity to hone their skills in a U.S. college or university, with support for professional development after they return home.

It usually recruits young leaders between the ages of 25 and 35, with an established record of accomplishment in promoting innovation and positive impact in your organizations, institutions and communities.

This year, the Mandela Washington Fellowship will open the application from September 12 to October 10 for the 2019 cohort of the Young African Leaders Initiative.

Prepare yourself and don’t forget to submit your application when it opens.
