Young African Leaders Programme – Call for Policy Leaders

Young African Leaders Programme

EU DG INTPA (International Partnerships) in partnership with the EUI’s School of Transnational Governance has launched the Young African Leaders Programme, a three-month fully-funded fellowship that will take place in Florence between September and November 2021.

This is a pilot programme that provides a unique opportunity for policy professionals from Africa to further develop their competencies and skills in an international environment amidst scholars and practitioners.

The call for applications is open to African civil servants, journalists, entrepreneurs and NGO practitioners with a keen interest in and commitment to transnational policy issues and programmes relevant to African countries, including green transition, trade and regional governance, gender, digital technology and sustainability.

The Programme targets mid-career, high potential policy-makers, diplomats, and professionals from Africa, working in national and local authorities, regional, continental, international organisations and development partners, civil society organisations, academia, media and private sector, in Africa. More precisely, the Programme is open to young female and male professionals, mid-career and executives alike, who are nationals of African countries, residing in Africa and are under the age of forty-five who hold a Master’s degree in Economics, Social Sciences, Public Administration, Development, Business Administration, Law or other relevant field.

The deadline for application is the 31th of March 2021 and all relevant information are available at this link
