Our programs have always strived to strengthen human capacity in Africa, and promote increased dialogue and understanding between the U.S. and Africa. Historically, AAI enabled thousands of African leaders to obtain scholarships to earn advanced academic degrees in the United States.

Today, AAI administers short- and long-term academic and professional development training programs in Africa to equip African talent with the deep knowledge and real-world skills to fuel their country’s development and accelerate economic growth.

Our current programs include the Transformational Leadership Program (TLP), AAI Annual Talent Summit, State of Education in Africa and the AAI Speaker Series. AAI previously delivered the following programs: Mozambique Participant Training Program, International Fellowship Program (Mozambique and South Africa), Namibian Government Scholarship and Training Program, Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women Initiative (Tanzania, Kenya, and Nigeria), and USAID’s ASHA program (Kenya).
