FULLY FUNDED : Apply for the  2024 Obama Foundation Scholarships for International Students, United States

Applications are open for the 2024 Obama Foundation Scholarships for International Students, United States.

For up-and-coming leaders around the world who are committed to solving problems in their communities, nations, and regions, the Obama Foundation Scholars Programme in the USA offers an incredible opportunity. With the help of this global programme, you may improve your knowledge, abilities, and skills while creating priceless connections that will have a long-lasting effect on your local communities. Leaders that exemplify principles such as community orientation, inclusion, courage, hope, imagination, responsibility, integrity, strategy, and resilience are the target audience for this fully supported fellowship.

It is not possible to follow this programme in addition to another degree programme because it is a full-time residential programme. Those who are not currently enrolled at Columbia University are given preference.

Since the program's inception in 2018, 70 emerging leaders from 54 nations have participated. It focuses on tackling important community concerns like women's rights advocacy, healthcare access, gender violence reduction, environmental sustainability, and governance. This programme is genuinely transformative because previous scholars have gone on to become significant practitioners in a variety of sectors, including education, civic participation, and sustainable development.

For the eighth cohort, the University of Columbia is funding a nine-month programme designed to enable people all around the world to make positive changes. The initiative, which is a component of Columbia World Projects, links the needs of the world with Columbia University's capacity for research while emphasising precise goals and quantifiable results.

The Obama Foundation 2024 scholarship application process requires short answers, a resume/CV, two letters of recommendation, a personal video statement, and proof of English proficiency.


Only applications that adhere to the provided guidelines, including all required information submitted via the application form, will be considered.

Don't miss the application deadline, which is  12th December, 2023.
