Offer: African Women Public Service Fellowship

African Women Public Service Fellowship

NYU Wagner (Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service) is sending out a call for applications for the African Women Public Service Fellowship.

Call for Applications: Master of Public Administration and Executive Master of Public Administration

Deadline for Applications: January 7, 2010

The Fellowship
New York University’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service announces a call for applications for the African Women Public Service Fellowship. The fellowship program, made possible by a grant from the Oprah Winfrey Foundations, expands the opportunity for African women to obtain a graduate education that prepares them for public service in their home countries.

As fellows at NYU Wagner, African women study in one of two graduate programs: the two-year Master of Public Administration (MPA) (for details, visit http://wagner.nyu.edu/international/) or the one-year Executive MPA: Concentration on International Public Service Organizations (for details, visit http://wagner.nyu.edu/executivempa/).

The award will support tuition, housing, travel to and from the United States, and a small stipend to cover books and miscellaneous expenses. Fellows commit to return to their home country at the conclusion of the program with the goal of assuming a leadership position in a public service organization where they can meaningfully contribute to the challenges confronting Africa.

Who Should Apply
To qualify for the Fellowship, prospective applicants must meet the School’s general admissions criteria (for details, visit http://www.wagner.nyu.edu/admissions/applying/masters.php) and be citizens and residents in an African country at the time of application. NYU Wagner’s admissions committee pays particular attention to applications from women who possess strong academic records; who have a demonstrated commitment to public service; and for whom a Wagner education would significantly enhance their ability to have a deep and lasting impact on public issues in their home country and region. Please see the biographies of recent fellows on the website. For more information or to request an NYU Wagner viewbook, visit http://wagner.nyu.edu/admissions/
