What is an Education Generation Fellowship?
Education Generation is re-imagining the role of education in developing a generation with the confidence, capacity and determination to help shape their local and global communities. We partner with high caliber institutions and community organizations to manage scholarships and student relationships. These organizations are deeply rooted in their communities, and typically emphasize leadership development, creative thinking, entrepreneurial skills and market relevant training, while working to influence their education system as a whole.
Our Fellowship Program
Our Fellowship Program gives graduate students and young professionals the rare opportunity to work alongside, Education Generation scholarship recipients. Fellows work in one of our field partner organizations including Ecuador, Ghana, Kenya, Peru, Rwanda and more to come.
Our Fellowship Program has 3 main components:
The Fellowship begins with distance learning followed by intensive training at the Education Generation offices. The curriculum has four main pillars:
- Country-specific learning
- Organizational mission and strategy
Fellows work at our Education Generation partner organizations in communities that have included Afghanistan, Ecuador, Ghana, India, Kenya, Pakistan, Peru, Rwanda, Sri Lanka and Uganda. Partner organizations are boarded regularly expanding our community reach. Fellows engage in interviews with our students, gather media, collect data and learn about the work of our partners on the ground.
After the Fellowship, Fellows share their key learning with each other as well as with the Education Generation team. Fellows are also expected to engage with their workplaces and universities. We welcome Fellows as core members of the Education Generation team and provide opportunities for ongoing engagement with our partners and organization.
