Study-In-Italy: 2022 European University Institute (EUI) Young African Leaders Programme

The Young African Leadership Programme funded by the European Commission is a tailor-made fellowship and training programme aiming at catalysing and fostering changes as envisioned in the Africa Agenda 2063 and in the Africa-EU Partnership. After a pilot cohort in Autumn 2021, the second cohort of Young African Leaders is expected in Florence in September 2022

The Young African Leaders Programme is a fellowship scheme that provides a unique opportunity for policy experts from Africa (all regions) to further develop their policy work and professional and leadership skills amidst international experts.

Furthermore, the Programme aims at creating new networks, connecting a strong cohort of leaders committed to driving change in their own countries and across the continent, as well as address the gender gaps and foster inclusivity in leadership roles.

Interaction with the other fellows, policymakers and the academic community at the EUI will make this a truly unforgettable experience.

The structure of the Programme will be as follows:

  • Executive Training Seminars on thematic issues;
  • Professional Development Workshops, providing a set of leadership skills, tools and concrete case studies;
  • Study Visits to EU institutions, relevant academia, and international organisations
