LEAP Africa is delighted to announce its LEAP Fellows Initiative. The initiative is a 3 - 4 month professional fellowship for individuals with under 5 years post graduate experience who have a passion for leadership development in Africa.
Fellows will serve full-time at LEAP Africa located in Lagos, Nigeria working on issues centred on leadership, business development and social change. The initiative is designed to enable Fellows develop their leadership and research skills while sharing best practices.
BENEFITS FOR FELLOWS
Selected candidates are expected to pay for their travel to the Nigerian Embassy but LEAP Africa will reimburse the visa fees for successful applicants. LEAP Africa will also write a letter in support of the selected candidate’s visa application.
Coaching & Networking:
Fellows will receive approximately one week of orientation at the beginning of their Fellowship and will be exposed to captains of industry and networking opportunities during the period of the fellowship.
Fellows will be enrolled on a basic Nigerian health insurance plan.
Fellows will receive a monthly living stipend but are expected to be responsible for their accommodation arrangements. We strongly recommend that fellows have established housing/living arrangements in Lagos.
