International Development Fellowships

The Aga Khan Foundation is recruiting young people for its International Development Fellowship Program.  Fellowships feature an eight-month placement in Asia or Africa, preceded by a four week management seminar in Ottawa facilitated by leading development practitioners.

The month-long management seminar in Ottawa provides fellows with a thorough grounding in the skills required to contribute effectively to their host organizations by emphasizing an analytical approach and strategic thinking and planning. Workshops are taught by some of Canada’s foremost international cooperation professionals.

Participants then carry out an eight-month internship where they gain first-hand, practical experience, while contributing to their host organization’s work.

Fellowships are available in:

  • international development management
  • international microfinance and microenterprise
  • young professionals in media
