Nile Project Fellowship Program 2016 for University Students

Our fellowship is a 12-month leadership program designed to support young, visionary, and action-oriented university students with the tools they need to develop a regional network of Nile Project Clubs on their campuses. In partnership with local communities, the clubs will host activities for both the students and community members that enhance mutual understanding, knowledge transfer, experience sharing with the goal of finding innovative cultural and environmental solutions to Nile sustainability challenges. The University Program is relevant to students interested in water and food innovations; hydro-diplomacy and water conflict transformation; and the arts and cultural traditions of Nile Basin countries.
