The Africa Initiative for Governance in collaboration with the University of Oxford is set to sponsor five individuals from Nigeria and Ghana to pursue a Master of Public Policy degree at the Blavatnik School of Government (BSG), University of Oxford. AIG aims to be a catalyst for public sector transformation and hopes to use this initiative to achieve that.
AIG Scholars will be expected, upon graduation, to return to their home country and apply their learning experience as change agents in their country’s public sector.
The AIG Scholarships are full scholarships covering fees, accommodation and living expenses.
