Deadline: May 1, 2016
Applications are now open for the Grameen Foundation Fellowship, a unique opportunity for talented business and technology professionals to gain in-depth, hands-on field experience in the social sector.
Each 12-month field placement is individually tailored to match your skills and interests with the needs of Grameen Foundation and its partners around the world. During their year in the field, our 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 organisations committed to alleviating global poverty.
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.
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, they also look for expertise in the areas of financial services, health, agriculture, mobile technology, and social entrepreneurship.
All Fellows receive living stipends,supplemental health insurance and ongoing professional development support. There is financial and logistical support available during any relocation.
