Kaduna State Government Kashim Ibrahim Fellows Programme 2019/2020 for young Nigerians (Fully Funded)

Kashim Ibrahim Fellowship 2018

Date limite d'inscription: Mars 20th 2019

En août 2018, le Gouvernement de l'État de Kaduna welcomed the inaugural class of the Kashim Ibrahim Fellows Programme. Following a rigorous selection process, 16 Fellows from all over Nigeria are participating in the one-year Fellowship.

The Programme’s objective is to develop and nurture leadership ability across Nigeria, with specific focus on the promising leaders of the future. The one-year programme aims to create a network of high potential young Nigerians who are expected to rise to top leadership positions in the public sector and other spheres of activity over the next decade. The overall mission of the non-partisan programme, as envisioned by Governor Nasir el-Rufai, is in his words, “pour former la prochaine génération de dirigeants qui seront probablement absorbés par le secteur public nigérian et qui ont une expérience directe de son fonctionnement et de ses défis".

Le programme de boursiers Kashim Ibrahim comprend quatre composantes, à savoir:

  1. Placement de travail

Engagement in the work of Kaduna State Government lies at the heart of a Kashim Ibrahim Fellowship. Work assignments can offer unparalleled experience working with senior administration officials on ever changing issues and challenges. Fellows will spend a year as full-time, paid assistants to senior Government House Staff, Cabinet members and other top-ranking government officials in State Departments and Agencies.

  1. Affectations de travail: Fellows responsibilities would range from supporting public service delivery, interagency meetings and designing and implementing state government policies, to drafting speeches for government principals to representing their agencies outside Kaduna State. Fellows’ assignments demand a capacity for quick learning and a willingness to work hard, often on issues outside of their area of expertise. Job assignments are made at the commencement of the Programme during “Placement Week”.
  2. Rémunération: Fellows will receive salary and benefits equivalent to that of a Special Assistant to the Governor from the Ministry, Department or Agency for which they work. Kashim Ibrahim Fellows cannot receive compensation from any other source during their year of government service. Additionally, accommodation will be provided throughout the course of the programme.
  3. Programme d'éducation

Le programme d'éducation obligatoire est un aspect important de la bourse, car il vise à accroître et à améliorer l'expérience de stage. On s'attend à ce que les boursiers entreprennent entièrement le programme d'éducation qui inclurait la série de conférenciers, les voyages de politique intérieure, un voyage politique international et des séminaires trimestriels de style d'institut d'Aspen. Au cours de ce processus, un équilibre est maintenu entre le développement personnel, l'autoréflexion et le contexte de leadership nigérian. Les valeurs et l'éthique du leadership constituent également une composante majeure de l'expérience d'apprentissage.

3. Service publique

Community service is a key component of the Kashim Ibrahim Fellows Programme. Fellows have a strong legacy of service to their communities and participate in community service projects throughout their year in Kaduna Metropolis. Fellows will be expected to pursue projects to assist the urban poor with solid waste management and recycling systems, volunteer teaching, mentoring secondary school students, assisting Nigerian Legion members, or participating in the clean-up of local schools.

4. Fellowship

Perhaps the most enriching component of the programme is class fellowship, which often results in enduring friendships and collaborative ventures. Alumni will convene at yearly meetings in Kaduna hosted by the Governor, to eagerly welcome new Fellows into what we hope would be one of the most prestigious networks of professionals and leaders in the state and our nation.
