The Catholic Relief Services CRS International Development Fellowships Program, or IDFP, is designed for individuals dedicated to a career in international development. While completing comprehensive training on program management and operations, fellows support CRS’ work in various sectors such as agriculture/livelihoods, health, peacebuilding, emergency response, education, microfinance, or a combination of these. The fellows’ training focuses on project management, project design and proposal development, partnership and capacity building, monitoring and evaluation, budget and resource management, supply chain and logistics, human resources and security protocols.
CRS offers 20-25 International Development fellowships each year. Each fellow is placed in one of CRS’ overseas country programs for the 12-month fellowship. CRS determines the location by matching the fellows’ skills and experience with the country program’s portfolio and needs. Most Fellows continue to work for CRS, in a variety of positions, upon successful completion of the fellowship.
CRS provides International Development Fellowships participants with the following benefits:
