The publishers of African Liberty call on students and graduates across the African continent to apply for its 2023/2024 Writing Fellowship.

The African Liberty Writing Fellowship program is a year-long program designed to train young Africans with career interests in academia, media, public policy, or any other critical-and-analytical-writing-related career in opinion article writing. 

Accepted applicants will complete a five-week mandatory online course. The top thirty-five candidates from the five-week training will be admitted as African Liberty writing fellows.

The five-week training starts on 23 May 2023 and ends on 20 June 2023. The writing fellowship starts on 11 July 2023 and ends on 11 July  2024.  

The African Liberty Editorial Assistant, David Adetula, shared the benefits of the fellowship with UCJ UI and urged its members to apply. “We’ve helped our fellows get featured in leading African and non-Africa media outlets,” he noted.

The benefits of the fellowship include:

• Access to expert instructors.

• 12-month writing fellowship.

• Get published in Africa’s top newspapers.

• Monthly stipend for top contributors.

• Opportunity for TV and radio features. 


An applicant has to be enrolled in or must have graduated from, an African institution of higher learning. Or, be an African pursuing higher education outside the continent.
