Africans Fellowships » Leaders of the Future Fellowships
Archbishop Tutu Leadership Fellowships: The goal of the African Leadership Institute (AfLI) is to nurture and enhance leadership capability across Africa, with particular focus on the promising leaders of the future.
AfLI’s aim is to create a network of high potential young Africans who have attended our programmes, and who are expected to rise to top leadership positions in their sphere of activity over the next 5-20 years.
The flagship programme of the Institute is the Archbishop Tutu Leadership Fellowship Programme (ATLP), whereby each year 20-23 high potential individuals from across sub-Saharan Africa are awarded the prestige Archbishop Tutu Fellowship, following a rigorous competitive selection process.
The Awards are aimed at the cream of the continent’s future leaders, as indicated by the demanding selection criteria below, specifically targeting the next generation of Africa’s leaders in all sectors of society, between the ages of 25 and 39.
The ATLP is a multi-faceted leadership learning experience, whose focus is “African leadership in a Global context”.
It is a 5 month part-time programme run in partnership with Oxford University and African institutions.
The ATLP involves two 9 day workshops, the first in South Africa on April 24 to May 1 while the second will be held at Oxford University and in London at the beginning of September.
The candidate’s costs of travel, accommodation and tuition at the workshops will be covered by the Fellowship.
The ATLP provides participants with an intensive learning and broadening experience on the principles and application of leadership, and an opportunity to explore the issues and specific characteristics of African leadership, as well as the global challenges and dimensions of leadership.
