In an increasing effort to promote education among students of African origin, the Stanford University is offering Fellowship grants worth $145,000USDs to students interested in their school this 2014.
The Stanford Africa MBA Fellowship Program pays for tuition and associated fees (approximately US $145,000) for citizens of African countries with financial need who wish to obtain an MBA at Stanford GSB. Stanford will award up to eight Stanford Africa MBA Fellowships annually.
Within two years of graduation from Stanford GSB, Stanford Africa MBA Fellows are required to return to Africa to work for at least two years in a professional role that contributes to the continent’s development.
Stanford launched the Africa Fellowship Program in 2013, and we expect it to run for three to five years.
