The month-long call for Entries for the maiden edition of the Ekow Mensah Fellowship Program ended on the 31st of May, 2019 with 91 applications from 6 African Countries. Receiving applications from countries such as Ghana, Nigeria, Mauritius, Zambia, Kenya and South Africa indicates the continental wide endorsement of the Fellowship Program.
The EMFP is a 13-weeks on and offline Capacity Building, Mentorship, Coaching, Support and Accountability program that targets 37 impact-driven young adults, between the ages of 18 to 30, passionate about developing entrepreneurship, leadership and essential life skills that will better position them to adequately address challenges faced in the pursuit of their dreams, in impacting lives and in transforming their society.
The applications will go through a shortlisting process to select the 37 finalists that will make it into the 13-week fellowship program. Successful candidates at the end of the capacity building program will be awarded certificates and invited to become part of the prestigious EMFP Fellows with annual accountability sessions to access performance, review life plans and provide the necessary support to advance their pursuit and impact.
EMFP Fellows, otherwise known as ‘Torch Bearers’ will all receive an invitation to join the EMFP Alumni Network which will present them a lifetime opportunity to be part of a caring, challenging and empowering support system.
The Ekow Mensah Fellowship Program has come to stay and promises to live up to its promise and expectation of being a reliable resource and support system for passionate and committed youth determined to bring lasting change to Africa.
