Generation Next Humanitarian Fellowship Program for for students from minority-serving institutions (Fully-funded)

The Generation Next Humanitarian Fellowship Program (GenNext Fellowship) aims to increase the diversity of professionals in the humanitarian sector by building a pathway for students from minority-serving institutions such as HBCUs, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, Tribal Colleges and Universities and Asian American and Pacific Islander Institutions.

 

USAID’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA) is funding a Humanitarian Fellowship Program with the Public Health Institute (PHI) to create new pathways into the humanitarian sector and provide guided technical and professional development opportunities for a more diverse workforce. PHI is partnering with the Cooperative for American Remittances to Europe (CARE), Global Communities, Project Hope, Save the Children, and other organizations to offer two-year paid fellowship opportunities that will build career pathways for recent graduates from Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs).

The Generation Next Humanitarian Fellowship Program aims to diversify the humanitarian sector by building a pathway for students graduating from Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, Tribal Colleges and Universities, and Asian American and Pacific Islander Institutions.
