Oprah Winfrey Foundation African Women’s Public Service Fellowship

 

Application Deadline: December 1st, 2018 

 

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.

 

Fellowship criteria

  • Citizen and resident in an African country at the time of application.
  • Strong academic record.
  • Demonstrated commitment to public service.
  • A 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.

The Fellowship Application Essay is included in the fellowship section of the online application; there is not a separate application.  Fellowship applicants must also submit the one-minute video essay in the application in order to be considered. Applications are due by December 1, 2018 deadline.
  • Those selected as fellowship semi-finalists will be invited to participate in Skype interviews with the Fellowship Selection Committee in mid-to-late February 2019.
