Introducing the Chife Foundation Fellow Program

Chife Fellows reading the Master Plan

Fellows working on Community Survey

The Chife Foundation is excited to introduce the inaugural Fellows Program this year for the Anam youth. During the 2010-2011 school year, the Foundation provided funding for 25 dedicated Anamites to pursue undergraduate and/or post-graduate education at a Nigerian university of their choice. The Chife’s have sponsored dozens of students over the past years, and this is the first year of community service run in tandem with the Internship Program.   This Fellows Program is deeply rooted in Dr. Chife’s own background: as a young Anamite, the community helped pay for his schooling. Therefore, facilitating higher education for key members of the community remains a central pillar of Foundation operations.

During their long vacations (taking place at various times during June, July, and August), the fellows are working closely with Chife Foundation staff and interns, providing a vital network of community members to help shape Anam New City development. Each of the fellows brings a unique background to the project, and over the course of this summer, we will post a series of short profiles to introduce these dynamic individuals, along with posts from the fellows themselves. Please keep check back for profiles as the program progresses.
