The Stanford Africa MBA Fellowship Program pays for tuition and associated fees (approximately US $145,000) for citizens of African countries with financial need who wish to obtain an MBA at Stanford Graduate School of Business. Stanford will award up to eight Stanford Africa MBA Fellowships annually.
Within two years of graduation from Stanford GSB, Stanford Africa MBA Fellows are required to return to Africa to work for at least two years in a professional role that contributes to the continent’s development.
Stanford launched the Africa Fellowship Program in 2013, and we expect it to run for three to five years.
