ProFellow’s International Fellows Network

ProFellow’s International Fellows Network (IFN) is a professional network of more than 2,000 international members representing current fellows and alumni from over 100 different fellowship programs globally. Our aim is to connect people who are working on social impact 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 in-person events, including our social International Fellows Network 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 fellowship program, such as Fulbright, Boren, NYC Urban Fellows, NSF, Humanity in Action Robert Bosch Fellows, Teach for America 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.

Please sign up here to express your interest in joining.
