Through U.S. State Department sponsored exchange programs, thousands more talented Ghanaians have developed their leadership skills and gotten to know America. Meanwhile, Ghana attracts hundreds of American students each year seeking to experience the rich history and culture of West Africa. These types of cross-cultural exchanges have created long-lasting networks across the United States and Africa. Below are Department of State Fellowships administered by the U.S. Embassy in Ghana.
