The Franklin Fellows Program
We are currently accepting applications for this program.
View the announcement on USAJOBS.
The Franklin Fellows Program provides middle and senior level professionals in academia, business, NGOs, foundations, and associations an opportunity to serve in government for one year. Fellows bring their expertise to bear to help formulate policy and implement programs and projects at the U.S. Department of State or the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). In recent years, Fellows have worked on issues as diverse as trade, entrepreneurship, nonproliferation, human rights, Ebola, the environment, and regional affairs.
The U.S. government does not compensate Fellows. Rather, the Fellows’ sponsoring institutions continue to provide compensation and benefits, or Fellows fund themselves. Fellows return to their home institution after their year in government. This Fellowship is open to U.S. citizens only; not open to current U.S. government employees. Applicants should be experts in their field with a minimum of five years’ experience.
