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 Laws 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. Applicants from any country in Africa are invited to apply.
