Good to see it have been increased from 500 to 1000 participants. Guess the fellowship may not continue if Obama leaves office.
Good luck to the applicants.

YALI is a great initiative.. took some of their online courses and it has really helped...
I'll implore people especially young folks to apply.. Even if you don't get picked, the registration process expands your thinking and helps sharpen some of your soft skills...

America is a great country to emulate and follow.
If Nigerian leaders were following American examples, Nigeria would not be in the quagmire it is now.
African leadership problem is not because of America, it is just that our leaders are just not good enough.
Countries like japan, south korea, are basically under American control and they are as developed or in the case of japan even more developed than America.

Seems like it is for unemployed people.

Who would resign for a 6 week internship?
