posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Deadline: 1st march 2016

Launched in 2013, the Grameen Foundation Fellowship is 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 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, we also look for expertise in the areas of financial services, health, agriculture, mobile technology, and social entrepreneurship.

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
