Peace and Security Fellowship for African Women
The African Leadership Centre (ALC) was established in Kenya in June 2010 as a joint initiative of King’s College London and the University of Nairobi. The ALC is pleased to announce a call for applications for the Peace and Security Fellowship for African Women for 2012/2013.
This Fellowship is an intellectual and financial award to those who have demonstrated obvious or potential capacity to make a change in their field. Please note that the Fellowship does not lead to an academic qualification, rather it is a postgraduate non-degree programme.
The Peace and Security Fellowship Programme for African Women is designed to expose young professional African women to the complexities of conflict, security and development. The exposure is to equip them for careers in this field by developing their expertise to generate African-led ideas and processes of change for addressing challenges on the African continent. The Fellowships especially aim to ground this expertise on peace and security in the pursuit of excellence and integrity.
Deadline for application is Thursday 12 April, 2012.
To be considered for the Fellowship please e-mail or post application documents (view here) to Eka Ikpe at [email protected] or Eka Ikpe, African Leadership Centre/ Conflict, Security and Development Group, King’s College, London, Strand Bridge House, 138-142 Strand, London, WC2R 1HH, UK by 17:00 hrs, Thursday 12 April, 2012.
