International Fellows Network and Kiva Fellows Dinner in San Francisco, May 2017

May 11, 2017

International Fellows Network dinner

Yesterday, the International Fellows Network partnered with Kiva Fellows to host a dinner for current and former fellows at Minas Brazilian Restaurant in San Francisco. The dinner brought together a cross-disciplinary group of leaders in their fields. Fellows discussed their experience on the Kiva Fellowship, an international placement-based opportunity focused on micro-finance, as well as fellows’ current interests ranging from impact investing, learning to code, solar power and water scarcity initiatives, entrepreneurship, the best rooftop bars in SF, and a project incorporating dance and social justice.

The International Fellows Network is a professional networking organization of more than 1,400 current and former fellows from all over the world. The IFN also holds events in New York City, Washington, DC, and Berlin, Germany. Through the IFN, current and former fellows can connect for socializing, advice and insights on fellowships, jobs, events, graduate programs and collaborative opportunities. If you are a current or former fellow and would like to join, please sign up for our fellowships database, and we’ll be in touch by email!
