These programs enhance the quality of global understanding, sending our students, scholars and faculty all over the world while at the same time, bringing the world’s best and brightest here to Ohio State.
For the second year in a row, The Ohio State University is one of just 38 academic institutions across the United States that will host a cohort of 25 Mandela Washington Fellows from the flagship program of the Young African Leaders Initiative. The fellows will participate in a six-week academic and leadership institute from June 16 – July 28 on Ohio State’s main campus. The fellowship provides 1,000 young leaders between the ages of 25 and 35 from Sub-Saharan Africa the opportunity to hone their skills at a U.S. higher education institution through academic coursework, leadership training and networking.
