Are you an emerging leader in Uganda’s civic and public service sector eager to grow both professionally and personally? Applications are open for the Huduma Fellowship Class of 2023.
The Huduma Fellowship is a perfect opportunity for you to contribute meaningfully to your country, hone core values like service and integrity, and shape personal leadership.
The Huduma Fellowship is an initiative by the LéO Africa Institute and Konrad Adenauer Stiftung which has provided thought leadership training for 30 emerging champions in Uganda’s civic and public service sector over the last two years. The programme enrolls 15 outstanding champions who are already working in the field or aspire to do so for a two-year training on the ideals and tenets of public service.
The two-years fellowship consists of 2 seminars and 2 workshops. The seminars and workshops are three days long – from Friday to Sunday. During the fellowship, participants engage in a variety of activities, including face-to-face sessions, interactive workshops, personal assessments, individual and group exercises, and special projects. Through these different approaches, fellows have the opportunity to develop their leadership and thought-processing skills.
The Huduma Fellowship is a unique opportunity for emerging leaders to connect with like-minded individuals and learn from some of the most influential thought leaders in Uganda’s civic and public service sectors. Fellows will have the opportunity to network with their peers, build their skills, and make a lasting impact in their communities.

- Open to anyone between the ages of 25-35;
- Applicant should be working in the civic or public sector in Uganda;
