The International Fellows Network (IFN) currently comprises over 1,200 international members representing current fellows and alumni from more than 100 different fellowship organizations. Our aim is to connect people who are working on exceptional projects, research and enterprises. The network promotes professional networking and collaborative projects, and facilitates introductions among members for information on job opportunities, graduate school programs, awards and identification of host institutions for research.
The IFN holds regular events, including our small group Esteemed Fellows Dinners, in San Francisco, Washington, DC, New York City and Berlin, Germany. Our dinners bring together cross-disciplinary groups of leaders to share experiences, ideas and contacts over a social meal.
If you are a current or former fellow of a competitive fellowship program, such as Fulbright, Boren, NYC Urban Fellows, NSF, Humanity in Action, Robert Bosch Fellows and Luce Scholars, among many others, we invite you to join our network. You can request membership to our LinkedIn group to receive invitations to events and announcements. For quick membership approval, please list your fellowship on your LinkedIn profile. If you do not have a LinkedIn account and would like to join, please contact us.
