The Mo Ibrahim foundation fellowships for business leaders under 40 years (45 years for women) is closing next week on the 14th of October.

Each fellowship is for a 12 months period and includes a stipend of $100 000.

The foundation wrote on their website:

The Ibrahim Fellowships programme is a unique opportunity to develop the next generation of African leaders.

At the ITC, Fellows work on trade and development opportunities and challenges faced by developing economies, including those exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

By working in the Executive Office, Fellows are exposed to leadership in action with direct mentorship by the Executive Director, the Deputy Executive Director and the Cabinet.

Additionally, working with technical teams within ITC exposes them to innovative ways of developing and delivering capacity building and to building thought leadership around women’s economic empowerment, youth entrepreneurship and innovation.

The programme equips young Africans with knowledge, skills and confidence to contribute to inclusive and sustainable trade and development solutions.”
