Each year, ECA invites applications from qualified young African Professionals to the “ECA Fellowships for Young African Professionals” programme.

The Fellowship programme is targeted at young Africans. Candidates applying for Fellowship position must be below 35 years of age when entering the programme. They must have Master’s Degree or related Advanced degree. Candidates currently enrolled in a Ph.D programme or with an admission are also welcome to apply.

The programme aims to provide practical, on-the-job experience to the young professionals as they prepare either for a career in research and international development and the public sector. It will also familiarize them with the Commission's broad programmes and services to member States and sub-regional bodies in addressing the social dimensions of Africa's development.
