Innocent Chukwuma Social Impact Fellowship (ICSIF) 2022 for Young Nigerians

The Innocent Chukwuma Social Impact Fellowship 2022 is now accepting applications.

The Fellowship intends to help the next generation of young social impact pioneers and social justice leaders in Nigeria emerge and flourish.

Through social change activities in communities, social businesses, nonprofit organizations, research, and impact on development policy implementation, the fellowship program will help youngsters catalyze system and sectoral transformations in Nigeria.

Young Nigerians will benefit from the Fellowship’s support (technical assistance and sub-grants) as well as unique learning opportunities. Three main disciplines will be the focus of the fellowship engagements:

  • Management – Social Innovation, Social Entrepreneurship and Nonprofits
  • Public Policy and Governance – Law, Criminal Justice Administration, Policing and Security Sector Reforms
  • Impact Investing and International
