Bridging Boundaries

The Bridging Boundaries podcast was created through the Professional Fellows Program which is funded by the U.S Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and implemented by Michigan State University in partnership with University of Nairobi, Kenya; Sokoine University of Agriculture, Tanzania; and, Makerere University, Uganda. 

The podcast series brings together Professional Fellows to personally speak about their work, share experiences, and discuss questions of shared importance. Each individual podcast explores in depth one of the various overlying objectives of the Professional Fellows Program  

Through this podcast, we aim to bring you some of the most exciting discussions, experiences, and insights from some of the professional fellows. The Professional Fellows Program is an initiative that aims to provide emerging entrepreneurs from the US and Africa to access mentorship, networking, and cultural exchange opportunities.
