The Ibrahim Scholarships are a range of programmes to support aspiring leaders for the African continent. The scholarships reflect a range of priorities for African development.
From a focus on the education of women in Sudan to support for historically marginalised Nubian people in Egypt, the Foundation is committed to showcasing the best talent from the African continent, particularly amongst those groups who are often denied the opportunity to contribute to their society’s development.
Investing in the future of young people in Africa is key to improving the continent’s governance. The Foundation highlights areas in which dramatic impact can be demonstrated when young Africans are given the opportunities they deserve to build their own and their countries’ futures.
