The Mo Ibrahim Foundation offers Leadership fellowship program for Outstanding Africans to be hosted at African Development Bank (AfDB), The International Trade Centre (ITC) and The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA).

The Mo Ibrahim Foundation, is financing the Ibrahim Leadership Fellowship position. Established in 2006, the Mo Ibrahim Foundation aims to support good governance and great leadership in Africa.  The Foundation works to:

  • Support aspiring leaders for the African continent.

The Ibrahim Leadership Fellowship Programme is a selective Fellowship that prepares the next generation of outstanding African leaders by providing them with unique work opportunities at the most senior level of prominent African institutions or multilateral organizations, whose mandate is to improve the economic and social prospects of Africa.
