Stanford to Award Africa MBA Fellowships [#permalink] New post 23 Apr 2014, 21:44
Expert's post
The Stanford Africa MBA Fellowship application is now live, and the deadline to apply is June 13, 2014. The Fellowship enables talented African citizens with a passion for making an impact on the continent’s future to pursue an MBA at Stanford Graduate School of Business. ... plication/

What is the Stanford Africa MBA Fellowship Program?
The Fellowship pays for tuition and associated fees for citizens of African countries with financial need. The Fellowship was created to reduce the financial barrier for African citizens to pursue an MBA at Stanford GSB.

Stanford GSB will award up to eight fellowships annually. Within two years of graduation, Stanford Africa MBA Fellows are required to return to Africa to work for at least two years in a role that contributes to the continent’s development.

Promising candidates are encouraged to apply now for the Fellowship. Applicants can find details about the new two-stage application process and timeline on the Stanford GSB website. In the first stage, applicants complete the free Stanford Africa MBA Fellowship pre-application.

Up to 50 finalists will be selected by mid-July 2014 based on financial need, as well as Stanford’s admission criteria of intellectual vitality, demonstrated leadership potential, and personal qualities and contributions.

Finalists then apply for MBA admission (the application will be waived for finalists) to the GSB in Round 1, October 2014. The school plans to enroll up to eight exemplary Stanford Africa Fellows in the MBA Class of 2016.

Why is Stanford GSB providing this fellowship? Africa is at the forefront of significant global economic growth and opportunity. African students provide direct insight into an emerging global economy that will be increasingly powerful in business.

The school hopes that the Stanford Africa MBA Fellowship will encourage talented Africans to leverage the Stanford MBA experience to make a big impact in Africa, executing the GSB’s mission to change lives, change organizations, and change the world.
