Duquesne University Statement Regarding Former Mandela Washington Fellow
There have been media reports regarding a past Mandela Washington Fellow incorrectly stating that she is currently at Duquesne University.
Anthonia Bisola Abayomi-Ojo is not a current member of the Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders. She participated in last year's program at Duquesne University, from June 17 until she left Pittsburgh on July 31, 2016. The University was unaware of these allegations prior to and during that time. Had the University known of this before Abayomi-Ojo's arrival, we would have requested that her fellowship be rescinded.
