Fellowship Opportunity: Virginia Palmer International Fellowship

The Virginia Gildersleeve International Fund (VGIF) is a public foundation providing small grants to grassroots projects that empower women and girls in developing countries. VGIF is seeking to develop its overall capacity for conducting research and evaluations, including but not limited to: develop an overall evaluation plan; begin the process of gathering and analyzing output and outcome data; plan and design an impact study; establish relationships with research entities; and produce meaningful reports on topics related to the mission of VGIF.

The Palmer Fellow will help start this effort, first by developing a project plan for the coming year, in consultation with the Executive Director, and then implementing this plan both independently and in collaboration with VGIF staff and volunteers. The Fellowship runs for nine months (approximately Sept. 1, 2013 – May 31, 2014) with an option to renew for another 9-12 month period. The Fellow will need to devote on average 15 hours a week to the project.

$18,000 stipend for 9 months
