Ufahamu Africans Nonresidents Fellowship Program 2021

The Ufahamu Africans Nonresidents Fellowship is a special program organized for Africans to exploit their ideas by creating podcast episodes. These podcasts are expected to proffer solutions to underlying issues in the continent, and the world at large.

Also, it targets mainly African scholars, nationals, content creators, and/or journalist who meet up with the criteria to be part of the scheme.
