Leadership and Advocacy for Women in Africa (LAWA) Fellowship Program

Georgetown University Law Center

The LAWA Fellowship program brings women’s human rights lawyers from Africa to Washington, DC, for a 14-month course of study to earn a Master of Law degree at Georgetown University. After the course, fellows will return to their own countries to advocate for women’s rights and put their training into action. After fellows earn their degree they will work with various public interest organizations in the DC area to learn different advocacy strategies and brainstorm ways to implement similar programs when they return home. The LAWA Fellowship provides the tuition for the Foundations of American Law and Legal Education Course (a U.S. $2,200 benefit) and for the LL.M. degree (a U.S. $58,500 benefit) at the Georgetown University Law Center, as well as professional development training. Applicants from any country in Africa are invited to apply.
