The USAID/West Africa Regional Mission is pleased to announce a new program called Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders. This is a new flagship program of U.S. President's Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI).
Beginning in summer 2014, the program will bring 500 of Africa's most promising young leaders for a 6 week academic and leadership institute training in one of the three areas: (1) business and entrepreneurship, (2) civic leadership, and (3) public management. The training will include leadership and mentoring, and will create unique opportunities in Africa to put those new skills to practical use in propelling economic growth and prosperity, and strengthening democratic institutions.
The application to apply for the Washington Fellowship will be available online and the deadline is January 27th, 2014. Please refer to the website
