Benefits for Fellows

The Nigeria Jubilee Fellows Programme equips the next generation of young leaders who are poised to steer the course of national development by giving them the tools they need to succeed, today.

Other programmes and initiatives tend to require some sort of advanced requirement from applicants or lower the entry bar in terms of the kind of opportunities that are available. NJFP does the opposite, by inviting qualified applicants across a level playing field without compromising the pedigree of organisations that will play host to successful Fellows.

  • Fellows will be matched with host organisations based on their interests as well as those aligned to the organisation
  • They will receive a monthly stipend from NJFP
  • 3 clear pathways are available for the Jubilee Fellow at the end of their active engagement in the fellowship:
    1. High performing Jubilee Fellows may go on to be retained by their respective host organisations.
    2. Fellows with interest in entrepreneurship would have garnered sufficient skills and knowledge on the job which will be invaluable as they pursue other opportunities
    3. With newly acquired on-the-job skills & competencies, experience. exposure and a formidable alumni network which can be leveraged, fellows are better positioned and equipped to compete and access future jobs and employment opportunities.
