The Expanded Independent Fellowship

Oberlin Shansi is opening our Independent Fellowship to new regions in Asia!

Starting this year, we will consider Independent Fellowship applications to Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, South Korea, The Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. (We will also continue to accept applications to China, India, Indonesia, and Japan.)

Through the Independent Fellowship program, candidates can apply to work with an NGO, educational institution, or social enterprise of their choosing. Interested applicants are highly encouraged to speak with Shansi staff.

The deadline for the concept note is October 28th, 2019.
