2015 AidData Summer Fellows

In partnership with the US Agency for International Development (USAID) Global Development Lab, the AidData Center for Development Policy is now seeking undergraduate and graduate students for our 2015 Summer Fellows Program. Selected participants have the opportunity to work with development stakeholder organizations primarily in Nepal and Uganda, with the potential for further opportunities in additional countries as they arise.

After attending a week-long intensive training session at the Center in Williamsburg, VA in late May, selected finalists will then travel to their assigned post for a 10 week embed with a host organization. While there, Summer Fellows will leverage AidData's geospatial data and tools to further the goals and work of their respective host organizations.

Applications are open to all undergraduate and graduate students. This is an unpaid position and selected fellows are encouraged to seek funding from their home academic institutions.

To apply for the AidData Summer Fellows program, send a short (1-2 page) resume and a cover letter to Alena Stern and Lauren Harrison ( by January 5, 2015.
