The Africa-America Institute (AAI) celebrates 65 years of promoting enlightened engagement between Africa and America through education, training and dialogue. AAI has administered and delivered more than 23,000 scholarship opportunities for African nationals from 54 African countries. Our alumni are among today's global leaders especially at the forefront of Africa's public, non-profit and private sectors in fields ranging from government leadership, technology, finance, public health, agriculture, education, business and the arts. Since 1953, AAI has offered more than 50 programs including The African Graduate Fellowship Program (AFGRAD), Advanced Training for Leadership and Skills Project (ATLAS), African Scholarship Program of American Universities (ASPAU), International Visitors Program (IVP) and the International Fellowship Program (IFP). We continue this legacy today, in partnership with leading organizations like the Jim Ovia Foundation, the East African Development Bank, the Ford Foundation, Ashesi University, Covenant University, the Enterprise Development Centre at Pan-Atlantic University, Rutgers University, the United States International University-Africa, and the University of South Africa to extend the impact of our programming and expand the capacity of our partner institutions as we work to collectively transform Africa's youth into the 21st century's leading scholars, educators and future executives.
