A Kiva fellowship allows you to immerse yourself in the culture and language of your host country or region for 6 months, while applying your skills in new ways with one or more of our 300 Field Partners. You’ll gain a behind-the-scenes understanding of microfinance and social enterprise. The Kiva Fellows Program has a small budget to help offset costs by reimbursing fellows for international travel (up to $1,500) and monthly living expenses (up to $2,500 total for a 6-month fellowship, or around $400/month). Kiva fellows must be 21 years of age by the start of training week. You must be able to legally travel to the U.S. for the week-long training program.
