Exceptional leaders and change-makers can come from anywhere. Financial constraints should not prevent the next great African leader from gaining the tools, skillsets and networks to bring positive change and create impact.
The Female Leaders Scholarship has been created to empower exceptional, young women to realize their leadership potential and lead a life of impact despite financial limitations.
Scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of the applicant’s leadership potential, entrepreneurial drive, and demonstrated impact.
We are searching for 50 resilient, driven, innovative, creative, mission-driven young women who have demonstrated impact in their communities to join us on our Rwanda and Mauritius campuses as the inaugural Female Leader Scholars.
In line with the vision of ALU which is, to develop 3 million ethical and entrepreneurial leaders for Africa and the world by 2035, the scholarship will support the aspirations of fresh applicants for any of the undergraduate programmes at the African Leadership University.
Beneficiaries will be rewarded with 100% paid tuition* and a once in a lifetime opportunity of being part of the next generation of extraordinary African leaders and entrepreneurs.
The Female Leaders Scholarship will fully cover education and accommodation expenses for the selected beneficiaries to attend the African Leadership University, studying at either its Mauritius or Rwanda Campuses - starting in September 2020.
