The application for the program is quite unique to ensure feasibility of the different activities that participants will engage in. We highly encourage that you go through the guidelines and understand clearly how to apply for the program. In case you need any clarifications, please feel very free to reach out to us.
We listen, and are very open to discussions and suggestions on how we can engage. Due to the high
interest and high number of requests to apply for the program at an individual capacity, we have open
up the option of applying for the program at an individual capacity.
Additionally, at the group and individual level, we encourage you to have a recommendation letter from
a lecturer in your university but is it not mandatory at this first stage of application.
Guidelines for Applying to the Program
The program is free and open to all students in universities and colleges based in Africa. All applicants should be students at a tertiary level institution (university or college) at the time of applying for the program.
The application for the program is to be done at a group level.
The group should have 5 members.
Each group should have a designated group leader who will collate and submit the required details on behalf of the team members
The group will be required to have a local mentor (lecturer or expert professional) who can support in the implementation of the local project. The mentor should also write a recommendation letter for the group and therein express their willingness to support the group.
We highly encourage members of a group to be from the same tertiary institutions (Universities, colleges, technical training institutes, vocational schools).. However, if from different institutions, the group members should be from institutions close enough to each other to facilitate collaborative implementation of a physical local project by all group members. Additionally, each member should have access to the focal institution where the local mentor hails from
As part of the application process, the members will be required to submit their student identification cards to confirm they are students of a particular institution.
