RRRInternational Development Fellowships

International Development Fellowships will not be available for the 2017-18 academic year.

The International Development Fellowships launched in 2014 by the Kellogg Institute for International Studies are competitive one-year awards for graduating seniors of the University of Notre Dame. The fellowships provide real-world experience overseas with partnering international organizations.

Fellowship recipients 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 also make valuable contributions to an NGO in the field of development.

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

Through this program, the Kellogg Institute is working with host organizations with which it has ongoing partnerships and shares a holistic vision of human development.

Two International Development Fellows have been selected for the 2016-17 academic year to work with the following organizations:

Association of Volunteers in International Service (AVSI) – Port-au-Prince, Haiti

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