Grameen Foundation Fellowship Program

Grameen Foundation Fellowship Program

Grameen Foundation Fellowship Program: Grameen Foundation is an industry leader in the fight against poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Middle East/North Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.

Grameen Foundation’s cutting-edge programs have helped millions of poor people improve their lives and progress out of poverty.

Our goal is simple– by providing access to appropriate financial services, life-changing information and unique income-generating opportunities, we enable the poor, especially the poorest and those living in harder to reach areas, move themselves out of poverty.

To help us accomplish our mission, we are launching the Grameen Foundation Fellowships Program and are looking for passionate leaders for our class!

As a Grameen Foundation Fellow you’ll have the opportunity to work with some of the brightest minds in global development and social innovation on projects that make a difference in the lives of the poor.

During this one-year fellowship, you will gain significant hands-on field experience on assignments tailored to match your skills and interests with the needs of our local field offices in Latin America, Africa, and Asia. Join the innovation, on the ground.
