Mo Ibrahim Leadership Fellowships 2012/2013

The Mo Ibrahim Foundation, in partnership with three of the world’s most influential multilateral organisations has launched the Ibrahim Leadership Fellowships programme. Working with the African Development Bank (AfDB), the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), and the World Trade Organization (WTO) the Fellowships Programme will help to prepare the next generation of outstanding African leaders by providing them with unique mentoring opportunities.

Having identified a lack of opportunities for aspiring leaders across Africa to gain critical experience at the highest levels of multilateral organisations, the Mo Ibrahim Foundation has worked with these partners to create the Fellowships. The AfDB, UNECA, and WTO will each host an Ibrahim Fellow in their executive offices. The expectation is that Ibrahim Fellows will go on to play a major role in the governance and development of the African continent.

Ibrahim Leadership Fellows will be selected by the institutions in conjunction with the Mo Ibrahim Foundation and will take part in a 12 month fellowship with one of the participating organisations. They will be young professionals, mid-career and new executives under the age of forty, or forty-five for women with children. The Fellows will be nationals of an African country with 7-10 years of relevant work experience and a Master’s Degree. They will support the work of the institution to further promote the economic development of the continent.
