Vetting and Grants Management Team Fellowship

GlobalGiving is seeking applicants to our Fellows Program to help further our mission and ambitious growth plans. Fellows will have a unique opportunity to learn how a thriving, international NGO operates through practical, hands-on experience with the nuts and bolts of our operations and ample opportunities to explore the broader field of development.

The program is a highly selective, full-time service year that will challenge and inspire you, and will require hard work and dedication. You will have the opportunity to explore various areas that interest you, so you can capitalize on your experience. You’ll be a vital contributor to our team—not getting coffee or filing papers all day long.

In return, we offer a $31,500 salary, health and dental insurance, professional development funding, tons of learning opportunities, ample delicious goodies in our Free Food Spot, and an amazing experience!

Here’s a little taste of the kinds of experiences you might have as a GlobalGiving Fellow:

  • Skill-building workshops to improve your understanding of international development, technology startups, social entrepreneurship, philanthropy, disaster response, and crowdfunding.
  • In-depth research and analysis projects around a particular issue area.
  • Training on experimentation, workflow, and querying tools such as Salesforce, Optimizely, MySQL, Metabase, and Zendesk.
  • Career preparation and professional development, including mock interviews and resume review. Previous fellows have used their professional development funds to take coding classes and even learn French!

About GlobalGiving

GlobalGiving’s mission is to transform aid and philanthropy to accelerate community-led change. We believe that good ideas come from anyone, at any time, or from anywhere, and we’re committed to supporting the people who have the best ideas about how to change their own communities.

Fellowship Focus Areas

We have fellowship opportunities on five of our teams: Vetting and Grants, Program, Operations, Business Development and Marketing and Communications. You are welcome to apply to multiple fellowships, but please ensure that your application highlights why you would be excellent in that specific role.

“GlobalGiving is my second family I love waking up every morning to come into work because I know I will be met with smiles and genuine interest in what I did over the weekend or how I am doing. Half the time it doesn’t even feel like work. I just sit in an open office with all my friends trying to change the world.”
