African Women’s Public Service Fellowship: New York University

The African Women’s Public Service Fellowship, made possible by a donation from the Oprah Winfrey Foundation, expands the opportunity for African women to impact for public service in their home countries.
The Fellowship provides full tuition, fees, housing or a housing stipend (if enrolling in the Global EMPA program), travel to and from the United States, and a small stipend to cover books and miscellaneous expenses.

Fellowship recipients 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.
This fellowship is only available to degree-seeking students. Advanced professional certificate and non-degree programs are not applicable for this fellowship.

FELLOWSHIP CRITERIA

  • Citizen and resident in an African country at the time of application.
  • Strong academic record.
  • Demonstrated commitment to public service.
  • An NYU Wagner education would significantly enhance your ability to have a deep and lasting impact on public service issues in your home country and region.

HOW TO APPLY

Submit your Fellowship Application Essay along with your online application to NYU Wagner for Fall 2018. The Fellowship Application Essay is included in the fellowship section of the online application; there is not a separate application.

Applications are due by December 1, 2017 deadline.
