IMAGO’s summer fellowship program draws on talented students who are working towards their Master’s Degree in a field related to international development. Selected fellows begin work in Washington D.C. under supervision of IMAGO’s core team, defining the activities and objectives to be achieved during the summer, and then are placed for 1-2 months of fieldwork with a partner organization of IMAGO, located in either South Asia or Latin America. Fellows then return to Washington D.C. for debriefing. Application information and additional information on the IMAGO fellowship will be posted in December.
