Auwal Socio-Economic Research Institute invites applications for the ASRI Future Leaders Program in South Africa in 2023.
The program is an intensive, full-time, graduate training programme. It develops young university graduates for careers in the Civil Society and Government sectors, and therefore recruits individuals who are socially and politically active in their communities. The program seeks to recruit young people who aspire, in different spheres, to create change in South Africa. In developing these young people, it enhances their social and human capital in a way that not accelerates their personal growth. But that’s not all, it also translates into increased opportunities in the future.

The program will accept 30 individuals for 2023.
Each person will receive a monthly stipend of R3,500 + a data sim card with approximately 20 GB to 30 GB of data per month while on the programme.
