SENDING TOP TALENT TO SOLVE PROGRAM AND POLICY CHALLENGES AROUND THE WORLD
Governments and non-profits across the globe have enormous potential and drive, but many face immense program and policy hurdles. Social impact organizations seek high-impact, scalable ways to address challenges that can be implemented effectively.
An incredible opportunity exists to create social impact interventions that really make a difference, and young professionals around the world are passionate about doing exactly this kind of work.
That's why the IIC, a program based at the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy, sends top talent to work full-time with governments and nonprofit organizations on 1 - 3 year long fellowships that implement innovative solutions to important issues, with a focus on strategy, program management, project implementation, and data analysis.
Currently, the IIC operates fellowship programs in India and the United States, directing future social impact sector leaders to add critical capacity to ambitious social impact organizations.
The IIC India Program embeds teams of high-performing young professionals within Indian government, non-profit, and social impact organizations to work on an innovative development project with a discrete, tractable scope for 1-3 year projects.
The IIC’s Applied Data Fellowship Program embeds fellows with strong data analysis and project management skills within local government departments and non-profits to add critical capacity to existing teams and projects.
