Acumen Fund seeks Fellows who will bring diverse backgrounds, training and experience to create a dynamic team environment. We welcome applicants of any nationality, and we are prepared to do what is possible and reasonable, within the guidelines of US and international immigration authorities, to address Fellows’ visa and immigration needs in order to ensure that we include the most promising future leaders.
Individuals are drawn from a pool of talented, passionate individuals from all geographies, sectors, backgrounds, religions and ages. Ideal Fellows include those who have already decided on a career in venture philanthropy, those who are seeking a career at the highest levels in the corporate world but want to better understand and impact problems of global poverty, and budding social entrepreneurs who want to learn about managing organizations in demanding settings.
The program is open to applicants to U.S. and foreign applicants.
