Fully Funded VIA Global Community Fellowship | Diplomacy Opportunities

The Global Community Fellowship is a 13-15 month program for graduating seniors and young/ established professionals. Fellows work at NGOs and schools across Asia to support community development and youth education programs. By working directly with communities, fellows get hands-on experience learning how organizations in Asia are using creative and innovative methods to address critical social challenges.

Who Can Apply? Starting and experienced professionals with a BA or BS degree (must graduate June 2017). Although the fellowship is primarily aimed towards US citizens, we do accept applications from international residents who have a previous connection to VIA or a substantial US connection (e.g schooled in the US, Institutions affiliated to the US etc)
