Support the Program

The Mandela Washington Fellowship at the University of Notre Dame relies on the support of a variety of individuals and organizations within and outside of the University. There are two primary ways for individuals to support the program at this time.

Become a Host Family for an Evening

Every summer since 2014 the University of Notre Dame has welcomed Mandela Washington Fellows to campus for their Leadership in Business Institute. Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, this year's institute will be held virtually. Our team at the Pulte Institute is in the midst of program planning that will consist of asynchronous and synchronous sessions. One of the sessions we could use your help with is the Family and Friends Connection, traditionally called hospitality night. 

This year Family and Friends Hospitality Night will take place on June 18 from 4-8pm. If you're interested in hosting a Fellow, please fill out this form. If you would like to receive further information on the Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders program at the University of Notre Dame, please contact Jennifer Krauser at or (574) 631-5469.
