The Washington Fellowship

The president decided to create the Washington Fellowship for young African leaders after a trip last year to South Africa. "The objective was to give young Africans the opportunity to come to the United States and develop their skills as the next generation of leaders in civil society and business and government," Obama told the young leaders.
