Fellowship Requirements

Fellows are expected to be active in fellowship activities for three years, while simultaneously performing their ongoing professional responsibilities. After the three years, Fellows are invited to remain part of the Synergos Senior Fellows Network and to continue participating in program activities as they are able.

Given the peer-to-peer nature of the Fellowship, it is essential that the Fellows make the necessary time commitment to participate actively in its activities. We estimate the total commitment of time on the part of a Fellow to be 14 days a year in the first three years. The Fellows are expected to:

Contribute to the body of knowledge being developed by Synergos to address poverty and increase equity.

Attend at least two annual global meetings, which usually entail international travel, as well as make a meaningful contribution to relevant regional or thematic affinity groups.

Be available for at least one peer counseling assignment.

Participate in our online community and use it to share skills, knowledge and experience.

Make at least one significant contribution to the advancement of the work of other Fellows through an article, speech, presentation or other forms of knowledge sharing.
