The Ominira Initiative for Economic Advancement is delighted to announce the launch of our Free Trade Fellowship program, and hence call for applications from suitably qualified candidates.

This six-month policy research and advocacy program is aimed at deepening the understanding of the nature and benefits of international trade, entrepreneurship, and a conducive business environment in Nigeria.

Applications are invited from journalists and academics with interest/experience in international trade, business environment, and economic liberalization. A prospective fellow must have related published works in newspapers, magazines, or journals.

For a period of six months, our (remote) Free Trade Fellows will publish articles on reputable platforms and make media appearances to offer market-oriented solutions to trade and economic issues. Ominira Initiative will pay a monthly stipend to compensate for time and commitment during the period of this fellowship.

Interested candidates should send a cover letter and CV to: by April 3, 2023.
