Applications for the Nigeria Jubilee Fellows Program 2021 are now open. The Nigeria Jubilee Fellows Program equips the next generation of young leaders who are poised to steer the course of national development by giving them the tools they need to succeed, today.
Rising unemployment and the COVID-19 pandemic are all impacting the ability of young Nigerians to find work. The program seeks to connect talented graduates with local job opportunities that apply their expertise, while equipping them with world-class practical knowledge and relevant skills. It does not matter if you have no job experience!
