TIV FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM



The Fellowship Program and UpSkill are inspired by the population dividend and the fact that practical learning opportunities available to students pursuing higher education in Uganda range from minimal to non-existent. As such, 300,000 graduates leaving the University system every year find themselves increasingly unprepared for white & blue collar employment, which is adapting faster due to advancements in technology.

Through UpSkill, our mission is to reskill 1000 fellows by 2021 in fields of Software Development, Product Design, Data Analysis, Social Entrepreneurship, Technology Commercialization, Project Management, Business Finance, Operations, and the Creative Arts and deploy 500 fellows on projects through TIV Fellowship program.
