Student Membership

Student membership offers a great opportunity for undergraduate or postgraduate students to become involved in the Institute’s activities by exploring a wide range of policy issues, research works, and debate developmental topics of interest relevant in the Gulf of Guinea region. Through a variety of curated and innovative platforms that falls in line with the Institute programs, it engages young members to create compelling opportunities to engage with experienced maritime experts and policy practitioners from the fields of politics, academia, private sector, and industry.


The student membership gives young members - who have been chosen through a membership application process – the opportunity to work closely with GoGMI experts on various research programs and develop innovative ideas that contribute to addressing the current challenges facing the region. Applicants should show a commitment to contributing to national and regional strategic debates, and are required to provide a copy of attestation from their university confirming the name and dates of their course, or a copy of their student ID.
