Knowledge acquired improves a person. Knowledge applied improves the world.

For the third year, a group of 25 leaders from the continent of Africa will train at Notre Dame as part of a five-year partnership with the U.S. Department of State’s Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders program. The six-week course focusing on business and entrepreneurship will prepare these women and men to better their respective corners of the world. 

The 2016 YALI Fellows will arrive at the University of Notre Dame on June 18.
