Stanford Africa MBA Fellowship Program
Through their “Stanford Africa MBA Fellowship Program”, Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) offers to pay the tuition and associated fees (approximately US $150,000) for citizens of African countries with financial hardships, who wish to obtain an MBA at Stanford. Under this program, Stanford is committed to award up to eight Stanford Africa MBA fellowships annually.
The catch is, within two years of graduation from Stanford, fellows of this program are required to return to Africa to work for at least two years in a professional role. This role must contribute to the continent’s development. For more details on the Stanford Africa MBA Fellowship Program, click here.
