USAID Democracy Fellows and Grants Program | About the Fellows Program

The Fellows Program

Democracy Fellows are technical specialists in focused democracy, human rights, and governance (DRG) areas, and are generally recruited for placement either within USAID/DC or in USAID Missions. Visit the Current Fellows page to learn more about current Fellows and their work on the DFG program.

Applicants can apply to serve as Democracy Fellows in two ways:  

  1. Apply to the DFG Applicant Pool; applications that meet the eligibility criteria will be automatically considered for available Fellowships.
  2. Apply directly to specific Fellowships published on the DFG website.

Applicants also are encouraged to join the Democracy Fellows Mailing List to receive updates on new fellowship positions.
