Global Leadership Program - George Washington University


This graduate fellowship program aims to develop and/or strengthen the professional capabilities of Fellows who will return to their countries of origin to apply those skills learned through their formal education at The George Washington University.

The Program is intended for students who will be future leaders in their fields in their home countries.


Ten Graduate Fellowships, which will cover full tuition and credit hour fees, will be awarded.

The grantee is to provide funds from other sources for books, living, and other expenses, equivalent to a minimum of $18,130 for 12 months, and must provide certification of this support.

A Fellowship is renewable each year for a cumulative maximum of three years for Master’s candidates and up to five years for doctoral candidates.

A grantee must submit renewal materials for the Fellowship each year; renewal is contingent upon the grantee's grades (GPA of 3.3 or better).

The Fellowship is valid for one degree only. Fellowships are for the fall and spring semesters.


Students from the following countries or regions (chosen based on protocol arrangements and areas of the world under-represented at GW) are eligible to apply:

  • Sub-Saharan Africa


    Applications and supporting credentials for fellowships must be received by the Office of Fellowships by 6 February.
