NYU Wagner Public Service Fellowships for African Women
Masters (MS) Degree
Deadline: Jan-May (annual)
Study in: New York, USA
Wagner announces a call for applications for the African Women Public Service Fellowship, a fellowship program made possible by a donation from the Oprah Winfrey Foundation, which expands the opportunity for African women to prepare for public service in their home countries.
NYU Wagner, USA
Field of study:
As fellows at NYU Wagner, African women study in one of two graduate programs: the two-year Master of Public Administration or the one-year Executive MPA: Concentration on International Public Service Organizations.
Number of Awards:
The awards for either program will support tuition, housing, travel to and from the United States and a small stipend to cover books and miscellaneous expenses.
To qualify for the Fellowship, prospective applicants must meet the general admissions criteria stipulated here and be citizens and resident in an African country at the time of application. NYU Wagner’s admissions committee pays particular attention to applications from women who possess strong academic records; who have a demonstrated commitment to public service; and for whom a Wagner education would significantly enhance their ability to have a deep and lasting impact on public service issues in their home country and region.
Applicants commit to return to their respective home countries at the conclusion of the program with the goal of assuming a leadership position on the continent where they can meaningfully contribute to the challenges currently confronting Africa.
There are not special forms or applications to fill out to be considered for the African Women Public Service Fellowship. You will automatically be considered for all scholarships, including the African Women Public Service Fellowship. Candidates must submit their application for admissions by January or May deadline.
