The BMGA Fellows Program is an entirely virtual learning experience.

The BMGA Fellows Program runs through a period of six months.

Yes, the actual cost of this program is approximately $5,500 per participant. However, BMGA Foundation and her partners have heavily subsidized the participation fee to $250 in order to democratize high-quality education for women in Africa and Asia.

Depending on the specific cohort, there may be additional scholarships available for successful applicants who may be unable to afford the subsidized fee. For example, all participants of the 2021 cohort were awarded full tuition scholarships.


Admitted applicants who are awarded a scholarship based on identified need would receive an email notification with this information. Thus, other than the successful completion of our application process, there is no additional requirement to be awarded a scholarship.

No. Young women from all professions and career paths are welcome to apply.

All participants get the in-program benefits, but only Fellows, that is, participants who graduate at the end of the program will join the Alumni Network with access to all post-program benefits.

Please note that the BMGA Fellows Program is an experiential learning program designed to narrow the gender skills gap. The program provides participants with the knowledge and resources required to gain fundamental employability skills that will strengthen their marketability in the business environment and ensure they remain in the work pipeline.
