Nasser Fellowship is the first inter-African Fellowship, and it is implementing the "One Million by 2021" Initiative that aims to qualify one million young Africans by 2021. The initiative was recently launched by the AU Commission on Science, Technology and Human Resources in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa.
The aim of the fellowship is to popularize the authentic Egyptian experience in national institution-building and to create a new generation of young African transforming leaders whose visions are in line with the orientations of Egypt's presidency of the African Union, and committed to serving the objectives of African unity by enhancing integration. In addition, the fellowship geared towards gathering the most influential young African leaders across the continent in order to equip them with the necessary training and skills, as well as to educate them about strategic visions.
