One Million Leaders Africa (OMLA) Fellowship Program 2024

Young African talents that receive an OMLA Fellowship are annually recruited by OMLA. They undergo a two-month program that covers topics including social entrepreneurship, sustainability, leadership, and social innovation.

Each fellow supervises and trains fifty other young people (called Stars) who want to start humanitarian projects in their areas after completing their training. In turn, the stars will instruct other youth (starlets). Over the course of their one-year fellowship, the OMLA fellows, Stars, and Starlets will oversee community projects. Following the fellowship, they will join One Million Leaders Africa’s support network, the OMLA Alumni Group.


  • A year will pass before OMLA Fellows are chosen. A $50 monthly fellowship stipend will be awarded to each OMLA fellow to help with internet fees and other associated expenses related to training OMLA stars.
  • In addition to thorough instruction and networking development, in addition to providing mentorship and $500 for professional development support (given upon the successful completion of the fellowship year), OMLA will provide fellows with professional development opportunities.
