2022 Teach For Nigeria Fellowship for Young Nigerians

Deadline: April 11, 2022.

The Teach For Nigeria Fellowship program is a 2 year full-time paid commitment in which we place the most outstanding graduates and professionals to teach in Nigeria’s under-served schools in low-income communities. The Teach For Nigeria Fellowship is a transformational leadership program that equips Fellows with transferable leadership skills to effect change beyond the classrooms in the communities they serve.

The two-year commitment is necessary to make the impact we wish to have on student achievement. In the first year, Fellows refine their teaching skills and establish respect and trust among various stakeholders within the school community and the students. This allows Fellows to achieve significant academic gains for students. In the second year, Fellows engage in their community projects to further their impact. During the two years, you will strive to transform the student, transform as a leader and transform your school and community.


  1.  If you already possess an Education Qualification to teach in public schools, you are eligible to apply for the Fellowship.
  2. Many of their Fellows come from academic backgrounds outside of Education without any prior teaching experience. During their training programmes, they empower you with the necessary knowledge and skills to do well in the classroom.
  3. Teach For Nigeria is looking for promising future leaders who are vision-driven and committed to transforming Nigeria through education.
  4. They are looking for individuals with varied levels of experience including recent graduates, working youth, experienced professionals and entrepreneurs.
  5. Teach For Nigeria fellows are citizens of Nigeria or of Nigerian origin. Teach For Nigeria is open to Nigerians who after the program can be a contributing change to education in Nigeria.
  6. To be eligible, you must be a Nigerian citizen, hold a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree and be younger than 35.
