After Fellows are selected, each person is assigned an EF program officer who work closely with them to plan and implement each fellowship. Program officers are accomplished professionals with extensive experience in a variety of fields, including international program management and development. Fellows also work with a local country partner who will help design the program, as well as organize logistical and travel arrangements.
Fellows begin to work with their program officer approximately three months before the fellowship begins. Fellows need to be full and equal partners in the planning of their program. The content, depth and ultimate outcomes of the fellowship program directly reflect the amount of planning and preparation Fellows invest in collaboration with their program officer prior to your travel. The program officer and country partner will depend upon Fellows to explain clearly their background, subject area expertise and fellowship project.
