Mandela Washington Fellowship at Appalachian 2019

In 2019, the Fellowship provided 700 outstanding young leaders from Sub-Saharan Africa with the opportunity to hone their skills at a U.S. higher education institution with support for professional development after they return home. Appalachian's Institute hosted 25 Fellows and focused on leadership and skills development in Civic Engagement. The Fellows, who were between the ages of 25 and 35, have established records of accomplishment in promoting innovation and positive impact in their organizations, institutions, communities, and countries.
