Global Community Fellowship


Application Deadline:
 November 11, 2018 11:59 PM US Pacific Time
Program Dates:
 June 2019 – June 2020
Locations: Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam


The Global Community Fellowship is a 13-15 month program for graduating seniors and young/ established professionals. Fellows work at NGOs, schools, universities, and social enterprises across Asia to support community development and youth education programs. By working directly with communities, fellows get hands-on experience learning how organizations in Asia are using creative and innovative methods to address critical social challenges.

Who Can Apply? Starting and experienced professionals with a BA or BS degree (must graduate by June 2019). Although the fellowship is primarily aimed towards US citizens, we do accept applications from international residents who have a previous connection to VIA or a substantial US connection.

Fellow Duties

Fellows often engage in a wide range of activities and tasks with our local partners. Although there is often overlap in the kinds of work fellows will do, they can be thought of as two broad categories:

Education-focused — With these partners, you’ll advance student development using critical thinking and cross-cultural communication. Through teaching (English or other subjects depending on the post), you’ll  help students to access future education and professional opportunities.

NGO-focused — At these posts, you’ll support community development and international communication efforts by supporting NGOs to access resources, networks, and collaboration opportunities. You may help with fundraising, project management, and community outreach efforts of our local partners.
