Ambassador Eric Schultz on the Mandela Washington Fellowship

October 15, 2015

We were excited to talk to U.S. Ambassador Eric Schultz about the Mandela Washington Fellowship.  In his interview, Ambassador Schultz said the U.S. government has seen a significant impact from its investment in young leaders through the Mandela Washington Fellowship.  Upon completion of their Fellowship experience in the United States, Fellows are building innovative businesses, connecting with U.S. and African investors, forging new relationships with young leaders across African nations, and serving their communities with skills developed during the Fellowship.  He also encouraged Zambians between the age of 25 and 35 to apply for the 2016 Mandela Washington Fellowship program before the November 11, 2015 deadline.
