10 Academy Fellows are young African builders who are capable of combining high cognitive ability, strong work ethics, passion for delivering results and knowledge of technology, to deliver results that are 10 times more impactful than what an average person can.
The Fellows will receive free tuition, accommodation and food covered for the duration of the course and will take part in an intensive, residential 2- month long programme through which they will work closely together to learn modern skills, work on a real-world project with potential for major impact and develop into a community of aligned and passionate youth working for development in Africa.
