Inclusion Illuminated: Professional Fellows Program on Inclusive Civic Engagement for emerging leaders in Africa

What do Fellows do during their Fellowship in the US?

Fellows will select a key policy or practice issue related to disability and civic engagement in their home countries, which will provide a focus for their individual Fellowship placement training.

What happens after the US Fellowship?

Eight carefully selected US Hosts will be approved to travel to their Fellows’ home countries for a 2-week period during which they will provide additional training, mentoring, and technical assistance to their Fellows.
