The Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders is part of President Obama’s Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI). 500 of Africa’s most innovative young entrepreneurs and leaders aged 25-35 were chosen from a pool of 50,000 applicants to attend a six-week institute at premier universities in the United States. The institute will conclude in a Washington symposium hosted by the President with all 500 fellows in attendance. The University of Texas at Austin is one of only 20 universities chosen by Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs to host the inaugural year of the fellowship.

YALI is currently underway at The University of Texas at Austin and the UT Global Initiative (UTGI) is pleased to collaborate with the International Office by hosting a weekly Leadership Seminar Series for the fellows.
The program theme for the UT group is "Business and Entrepreneurship." UTGI has selected talented faculty and staff to present the Leadership Seminars. These talks will focus on leadership techniques, project management skills, and overcoming challenges in entrepreneurship.
