Great news for African women aspiring to make a difference in their home countries through public service! Wagner, in partnership with the Oprah Winfrey Foundation, has announced the call for applications for the African Women Public Service Fellowship. This fellowship program aims to provide African women with the opportunity to prepare for leadership roles in public service within their communities.
The fellowship program will take place at NYU Wagner in the United States.
Field of Study:
Selected fellows will study in one of two graduate programs at NYU Wagner: the two-year Master of Public Administration or the one-year Executive MPA with a concentration on International Public Service Organizations.
This fellowship covers various expenses for the chosen candidates. It provides financial support for tuition, housing, travel to and from the United States, and a small stipend to cover books and other miscellaneous expenses.
To be eligible for the fellowship, applicants must meet the general admissions criteria set by NYU Wagner and hold citizenship and residency in an African country at the time of application. The admissions committee gives preference to women with strong academic records and a demonstrated commitment to public service. The program seeks individuals for whom a Wagner education would significantly enhance their ability to address public service issues in their home countries and regions.
Moreover, successful applicants are required to commit to returning to their respective home countries after completing the program. The ultimate goal is for them to assume leadership positions in their communities and contribute significantly to the challenges faced by Africa.
Applicants will be automatically considered for the African Women Public Service Fellowship when they submit their application for admissions by the January or May deadline. There are no separate forms or applications to fill out for this specific fellowship.
