2015 AfriAspire Fellowship Program in Nigeria

AfriAspire Fellowship Program is an Initiative built around year-long social innovation projects that are implemented by selected passionate youths in Nigeria and supported by funders and private partners.
Fellows implement projects that can solve new or existing problems in a Public Primary School in their various communities. They are provided training and
mentoring to help them grow. In this way, fellows develop their leadership skills, enhance their understanding of youth development, and build their non-profit management skills.

In addition to a training program for acquiring leadership qualifications, the fellows receive intensive support for external grant acquisition to fund their projects. In a step-by-step process, the fellows develop their own profile and visibility in their respective fields of interest.

Selection Criteria
• Must reside in South West Nigerian States (Lagos, Oyo, Osun, Ondo, Ogun and Ekiti)
• Application from youths living outside these locations will not be accepted
• Be between ages 18- 30 years
• Have exceptional interpersonal skills and leadership skills
