Kimoyo Fellowship 

Our 2020 cohort will take place from May 25th through August 9th. We will be accepting the top 5 applicants to be a part of this year’s program.

What’s expected of Kimoyo Fellows:

  • Full time commitment for 3 months. This program cannot be completed part time, it is a bootcamp meant to be done without any distractions.

  • Self discipline & motivation. Given the current COVID-19 pandemic, the entirety of this program will be remote. Therefore, fellows are expected to have the self discipline and motivation to complete tasks and assignments on their own. (With the support of other fellows and mentors of course!)

  • Repay training costs either by working on Kimoyo approved freelance projects, or income from a full time role secured after the program.

  • Professional UI/UX portfolio, featuring the work completed during the fellowship


If selected, you will receive the following throughout the program:

  1. Weekly personal mentorship from top design leaders across Nigeria & the US

  2. A daily stipend to cover food & transportation

  3. Internet data

  4. Access to design tools & programs (such as Figma)
