Acumen Fund Fellows Programme

Acumen Fund Fellows are drawn from a pool of talented individuals from all geographies, sectors, backgrounds, religions, and ages. Ideal fellows include those who have already decided on a career in venture philanthropy, those who are seeking a career at the highest levels in the corporate world, but want to better understand and impact problems of global poverty, and budding social entrepreneurs who want to learn about managing organisations in the most demanding settings.

The Acumen Fund Fellows Programme provides extraordinary young professionals with a unique opportunity to use their skills to effect real social change with portfolio organisations in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, South Africa, India and Pakistan, and to build lasting relationships with other like-minded individuals.

Application Deadline: 20 October 2008
