Africa Fellowship Program

This opportunity is an annual opportunity for young fellows and World Bank staff alike. For the fellows, 10 outstanding candidates are selected to spend a minimum of six months at the World Bank headquarters in Washington D.C. or country offices to get hands-on experience in the operations of the World Bank Group. They are then encouraged to apply for the World Bank’s prestigious Young Professionals Program that could launch them on a career in development at the World Bank. For staff at the Bank, it’s the chance to build greater capacity, be stimulated by new fresh perspectives, and benefit from cutting edge research work.
