Apply! Grameen Foundation Fellowship: Stipend & Ongoing Professional Development

Grameen FoundationApplication Deadline: 1 March 2015 and 3 May 2015

Grameen Foundation Fellowship is a unique opportunity for professionals from a wide range of industries, from management consulting and business to data analysis to healthcare and agriculture, to gain substantial experience leading the development and implementation of projects serving the poor, working with some of the brightest minds in social innovation.

During the program, fellows work with some of the brightest minds in social innovation on projects designed to accelerate the impact, scale and sustainability of some of the world’s most promising organizations committed to alleviating global poverty. All Fellows receive monthly stipends, group orientation, and ongoing professional development training.

Each Grameen Foundation Fellowship Class is different, as placements are driven by demands on the ground. Typically, strong Fellowship candidates have experience in strategy or management consulting and/or have worked in global business or in start-up environments. Since most placements will be with Grameen Foundation teams, expertise in the areas of financial services, health, agriculture, mobile technology, and social entrepreneurship are also sought. Fellowship placements will likely be in Africa (particularly Uganda, Ghana, and Kenya), Latin America (particularly Colombia and Nicaragua), Asia (particularly India and the Philippines), and the Middle East.

Candidates complete a general application for the Grameen Foundation Fellowship Program and are considered for opportunities that match their skills and interests.
