Each year, eight Global Citizenship Fellows work with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF’s Program and Community Engagement in the following locations: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. The fellowship is a highly selective, full-time, 13-month program that prepares diverse, committed, and globally minded individuals for effective leadership in public service.
By helping to establish UNICEF’s domestic imprint, the fellows will exemplify the concept of the global citizen as someone who understands global interconnectivity; respects and values diversity; has the ability to challenge injustice and inequalities; and takes action in a way that is personally meaningful. Fellows will aim to inspire their communities to take action for the world’s children by engaging local groups and cultivating awareness.
The application period for the 2014/2015 Fellowships has ended. Applications will be accepted for the 2015/2016 Fellowships beginning in Spring 2015.
