The first placement of 11 months will be spent in Washington, D.C. working with either the Programs, Impact Investing, or Communications teams. For the second placement of 12 months, fellows will be matched up with an AKDN office in Asia or Africa to spend a significant portion of their time on monitoring, evaluation and reporting to maximize exposure to different aspects of international development work. Together, the full program offers diverse opportunities to acquire first-hand knowledge on a range of global development issues and activities and to gain invaluable international experience working alongside AKDN professionals and beneficiaries.
Recruitment for the next cohort will commence in late Winter/early Spring 2015. Please check this page frequently for updates on exact dates. Additional information on the program is available in the AKF USA Fellowship Program handout, click here to download.
