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 $38,600 salary, health and dental insurance, professional development funding, tons of learning opportunities, and an amazing experience!
Here’s a little taste of the kinds of experiences you might have as a GlobalGiving Fellow:
Due to COVID-19, our Washington, DC office is closed and all staff are working remotely. The 2021-2022 Fellowship cohort will have the option of doing their entire fellowship program remotely. When the office is able to safely open for staff, the cohort will be welcomed to work from the office or continue working remotely.
GlobalGiving’s mission is to transform aid and philanthropy to accelerate community-led change.
We help fellow nonprofits access the funding, tools, training, and support they need to serve their communities. Since 2002, the GlobalGiving community has raised more than $500 million from 1 million donors for 27,000 projects in 170+ countries. Each of the nonprofits on GlobalGiving.org has been rigorously vetted and has committed to providing donors regular updates about how donations are put to work.
We have fellowship opportunities on four of our teams: Vetting and Grants, Disaster Recovery Network, Operations, and Business Partnerships. You are welcome to apply to multiple fellowships, but please ensure that your application highlights why you are the best fit in that specific role.
The Vetting and Grant Management team interacts with nonprofit leaders in more than 170 countries to evaluate organizations that want to join GlobalGiving. Fellows use GlobalGiving’s tools to determine if new organizations are eligible to fundraise on the GlobalGiving platform or participate in a corporate partner programs.
Candidates who are interested in international grantmaking, risk analysis, nonprofit governance, and cross-cultural communications are encouraged to apply.

GlobalGiving receives a high volume of applicants for the Fellowship roles. We will review applications and move qualified candidates into screening on an ongoing basis. We anticipate doing one-way video interviews to screen applicants before they move forward to a homework phase. Those passing the homework phase will do a final team interview with other GlobalGiving staff members, including the manager of that fellowship role. We will aim to communicate to all candidates regularly on their status, if possible on a bi-weekly basis.
A salary of $38,600, paid semi-monthly, will be offered over the course of the 13-month program.
This is a non-exempt, 40 hour a week position.
