To find and mentor the next round of outstanding African leaders, the Mo Ibrahim Leadership Fellowships were started in 2011. With a $100,000 stipend, three Fellows get the chance to work in the executive offices of the International Trade Centre (Geneva), the Economic Commission for Africa (Addis Abeba), or the Africa Development Bank (Abidjan).
Fellows develop technical and leadership abilities throughout the course of their 12-month programs while actively participating in research and policy development. The ability to gain from the direct mentoring of the leaders of the host organizations is a unique aspect of the program.
Fellows also join the Now Generation Network (NGN), where they can continue to use their knowledge and abilities to improve Africa.
Young professionals, mid-career professionals, and new executives from Africa with appropriate work experience and a master’s degree are eligible for fellowships.
