Good Morning Africa (GMA) is announcing the GMA Social Enterprise Fellows Program. The program seeks current graduate students in MBA, MPP, or PhD programs or recent graduates of these programs interested in spending 3-9 weeks this summer in Ghana to "learn first-hand what it takes for a venture to survive and thrive in one of the most challenging business environments on the planet!"
The program includes training on business in Africa, consulting experience, and completion of a market study or research proposal. The program is limited to 10 participants and costs vary, depending upon the length of stay.
According to the website, "Good Morning Africa (GMA) is the only US-based, non-profit organization that is solely dedicated to high-growth, social entrepreneurship in Africa. Our organization serves to grow and promote African business leaders who have an exceptional mind for business and a genuine passion for bettering their communities. We are headquartered in Washington, DC, and we have initiated test sites in Ghana, Rwanda, and South Africa."
There are 3 deadlines for applications (dependent upon your departure date): May 10, May 31, and June 24.
