Kellogg Institute Launches International Development Fellowship Program


The Kellogg Institute for International Studies announces the launch of International Development Fellowships.  These fellowships are competitive one-year awards for graduating seniors of the University of Notre Dame. The fellowships will provide real world experience, overseas (some possible limited work based in the US), with international organizations. Fellowship recipients will gain skills in project management, program development, and process implementation that will make them competitive for development jobs as well as other international careers. Through their work, recipients will also make valuable contributions to a non-governmental organization in the field of development.

Recipients of the fellowship will work for the host organization and will receive a monthly stipend, as well as funding to cover expenses including airfare to and from the host country, health insurance and vaccinations.

In the pilot year, three fellowships will be available with three non-governmental organizations:

Association of Volunteers in International Service (AVSI)

Compañeros En Salud, an affiliate of Partners In Health (PIH)

The Ford Family Program in Human Development Studies and Solidarity


Criteria to apply
