Global Community Post-Grad Fellowship in Asia – Deadline 11/3/19

Priority Deadline: November 3, 2019 11:59 PM US Pacific Time
Program Dates:
 June 2020 – June 2021
Locations: Hong Kong, Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam

The Global Community Fellowship is a 13-15 month program for graduating seniors and young/ established professionals. Fellows work at NGOs, schools, universities, and social enterprises 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 by June 2020). 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.

Fellow Duties

Fellows often engage in a wide range of activities and tasks with our local partners. Although there is often overlap in the kinds of work fellows will do, they can be thought of as two broad categories:

Education-focused — With these partners, you’ll advance student development using critical thinking and cross-cultural communication. Through teaching (English or other subjects depending on the post), you’ll  help students to access future education and professional opportunities.

NGO-focused — At these posts, you’ll support community development and international communication efforts by supporting NGOs to access resources, networks, and collaboration opportunities. You may help with fundraising, project management, and community outreach efforts of our local partners.

2-Year Post-Grad Fellowship in Social Impact Leadership

Are you a hard worker? A person who’s excited about problem-solving, who cares deeply about community and social justice and achieving real goals? Are you a dreamer, and incredibly practical, tough, resilient and persistent?

Each year, a new cohort of FAO Schwarz Fellows begins paid two-year assignments with leading nonprofit organizations.


The Fellows work at leading nonprofit organizations in Boston, New York City and Philadelphia. These organizations are all deeply valued in their communities and have a strong record of delivering consistent results and high-quality services. Host organizations vary from year to year — and all have a proven commitment to addressing critical issues of social inequity.

What We’re Looking For

The FAO Schwarz Fellowship is an intensive, transformative two-year experience in the world of social impact that includes focused professional development. Our Fellows are highly motivated, passionate recent college graduates who are committed to social justice.

Successful candidates have proven academic excellence, demonstrated leadership in their college communities and are eager to immerse themselves in a two-year experience that will challenge them, train them and empower them with the skills and network they need to take a first step towards leadership in world of social impact.


Applicants must be college seniors at the time of application and be eligible to work in the United States for the duration of the Fellowship.

How To Apply

Prospective Fellows apply directly to the host organizations for the next cohort. 

Applications open each year in early November when we announce new host organizations and Fellowship positions.

High Meadows Fund 2-Yr. Post-Grad Fellowship-Info Session 12/4

You are invited to join an Information Session to learn more about the High Meadows Fund 2-year post-graduate Fellowship offered exclusively to Princeton and Middlebury seniors graduating between December 2018-May 2019. Tomorrow’s event, Tuesday, December 4th, is  at 4:30 in The Franklin Environmental Center at Hillcrest (Room 103).  Hear from current fellow, Will Lathrop, Environmental Philanthropy Associate and a Princeton graduate. He will discuss his day-to-day work on sustainability issues throughout the state of Vermont and in particular how a community’s values inform their land use.

Here is a description from the the High Meadows Fund of the issues they work on:

Climate disruption threatens Vermont’s communities and working landscape. It is urgent Vermonters address it head-on by both lowering their contribution to a warming planet and adapting to the changes already underway. High Meadows applies this sense of urgency in three areas of focus:

  • Land Use: Encouraging working farms and forests, compact settlements, and watershed land use that protects communities, soil, and water quality.
  • Clean and Efficient Energy: Lowering fossil fuel use, especially in homes of low income Vermonters.
  • Farm, Food and Forest Enterprises: Promoting vibrant enterprises as well as healthy ecosystems.

We do our work through charitable grantmaking, research, convenings, direct engagement of our staff, and investing for mission impact. We particularly value social and marketplace innovation and collaboration.

Please see our website, www.highmeadowsfund.org, for more information and join the event tomorrow to learn more about the position or contact thimmeli[at]middlebury.edu if you cannot attend.
