The Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders, is a core program of the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI), a program that empowers young leaders through several weeks of courses, leadership education, mentorship, and networking at American universities, including Dartmouth, culminating in a conference held in Washington, D.C. A number of YALI scholars have focused on projects related to menstrual hygiene. Young African leaders and innovators age 21-35 should consider applying to this program.
