African Union Fellowship Program 2024

Suitable students should apply for the African Union Fellowship 2024, which facilitates the building of internal capacities of the host Africa Union organ. The 12-month program aims to coach competent tech innovators which comes with attractive stipends.

The African Union Digital and Innovation Fellowship Program is a graded intensive 12-month program that specifically looks for and recruits gifted tech innovators from the African continent to the units and organs within the African Union headquarters. Fellows will be called ‘resident fellows’ to understand the system within the units, find the data management difficulties within that system, and solve the challenges they identified by co-creating and building tailor-made products and processes.

The fellowship program is being run in the framework of the GIZ DataCipation program of the BMZ Commission which supports the regional organs of the African Union and the African Union itself to fulfill the continental body’s mandate of giving a voice to citizens.
