U.S. Ambassador Eric Schultz announced Washington is accepting applications for the 2017 Mandela Washington Fellowship. In his interview, Ambassador Schultz stated that through the six weeks of the Mandela Washington Fellowship in the United States, young African leaders gain the skills and connections they need to accelerate their own career trajectories and contribute more robustly to strengthening democratic institutions, spurring economic growth, and enhancing peace and security in Africa. He also encouraged Zambians between the ages of 25 and 35 to apply for the 2017 Mandela Washington Fellowship program before the October 26, 2016, deadline.
