The African Leadership Academy offers a highly selective two-year Pre-University Diploma Program scholarship which is geared at young leaders aged 16-19 from across Africa who have the potential to catalyze positive change on the continent. During their time at ALA, students complete a unique curriculum that includes courses in Entrepreneurial Leadership, African Studies, Writing & Rhetoric, and Cambridge A-Levels.

Admission criteria:

  1. Leadership Potential: At African Leadership Academy we seek young leaders with the potential to transform Africa and the world. They encourage students to share the activities in which they participate and the leadership roles they assume at home, in school, or in community, and they hope students will think critically about what “leadership” means to them.
  2. Entrepreneurial Spirit: Entrepreneurs identify needs in the world around them and take action to alleviate those needs. They start businesses, health clinics, youth organizations, and social movements. They bring new products and ideas to the world. Their efforts create value and improve lives. The academy encourages students to celebrate their entrepreneurial spirit and share their entrepreneurial ideas with the academy.
  3. Passion for Africa: Do you have an African dream? Are you excited by the idea of spending two years in a community of individuals from a wide range of cultural, ethnic, socioeconomic, and religious backgrounds from across the continent?
  4. Commitment to Service: When leaders use their skills for the benefit of their communities, we all benefit. Are you passionate about uplifting your community? Do you dream of a world in which all people are able to realize their dreams? Have you demonstrated this passion at school or in your community? We hope you will share with us how you plan to give back to your community and the world.
  5. Academic Achievement: To succeed in the rigorous and challenging ALA curriculum, students must have demonstrated mastery of the subject matter taught at the school they attended before entering the Academy. Our selections committee will closely review scores from national examinations and the marks and comments on each applicant’s school reports. Finalists will also write an entrance examination.

Benefits:

ALA identifies young leaders from across the continent with demonstrated leadership potential, a passion for Africa, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a track record of community service. After graduating, ALA continues to cultivate these leaders throughout their lives, in university and beyond, by providing on-going leadership training, supporting their growth through access to internships and careers and connecting them to high-impact networks of people and capital that will empower them to create transformative change.

Note: All finalists will be notified of their admissions status on April 30th 2020. All admitted students will be contacted by email and phone
