Sahel Scholars’ Programme
The Sahel Scholars Program was introduced in 2017 with the aim to empower outstanding Nigerian students through conferences, internships, mentorship, and scholarships. Every year, students in their penultimate year are selected across Nigerian Universities to participate in a 4-6-week internship program at the Sahel offices and each eligible to receive a funding award that will be applied to their final year of study. During their internship, the Sahel Scholars work as part of project teams at Sahel, are assigned mentors, and participate in scheduled workshops to develop critical skills that will launch their careers in the sector.
