The Mandela Washington Fellowship (MWF) is the flagship program of the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI). This program brings young African leaders to the United States for academic and leadership training.  Individuals chosen for a MWF must be committed to returning to Ethiopia to apply the skills they learned to benefit their country, their community, or their school. The 2020 Mandela Washington Fellowship application period will officially launch on 12 September and close on 9 October, 2019.

You are cordially invited to cover the launching ceremony of the 2020 MWF program, followed by an information session for interested applicants.  Alumni of the program from previous years will be available for press interviews at the event.

Time: Friday September 13, 2019 at 4 PM
