Georgetown Leadership and Advocacy for Women in Africa (LAWA) Fellowship Program
- District of Columbia
600 New Jersey Avenue Northwest
District of Columbia
The Leadership and Advocacy for Women in Africa (LAWA) Fellowship Program was founded in 1993 at the Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C., in order to train women's human rights lawyers from Africa who are committed to returning home to their countries in order to advance the status of women and girls in their own countries throughout their careers. Over 80 women's human rights advocates from Botswana, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe have participated in the LAWA Program, and we hope to include Fellows from additional countries in the future.
The LAWA application is available at https://www.law.georgetown.edu/academics/centers-institutes/wlppfp/lawa/LAWA-Application.cfm, and is due on Friday, January 12, 2018. Please follow all instructions carefully, and note that late or incomplete applications will not be considered.
You must arrange to have your transcripts mailed to the address included in the application immediately if you wish to be considered for a LAWA Fellowship.
