Through collaboration and capacity-building, Fellows and local communities form dynamic partnerships to exchange knowledge and skills and share a mutual passion for advancing social and economic development. Fellows support AIF’s partner organizations at a crucial moment of scalability by meeting their human resource and organizational needs. Responsibilities vary based on the needs of the host organizations, project goals, and a Fellow’s skill sets. Fellows serve through contributing their efforts and skills to developing ongoing initiatives, as well as strategizing new projects.

Each Fellow is paired with a mentor at the host organization and with a mentor at AIF for support throughout the project. During the selection process, they take note of the skill sets and career aspirations of potential Fellows to match them with appropriate AIF partner organizations.

The Fellowship creates a community of socially engaged, global citizens dedicated to positive change. Fellowship Alumni have traditionally applied their leadership in the areas of international development, education, social entrepreneurship, technology, business, academia, journalism, public health, human rights, and others. Together they represent a collective force for sustaining a long-term agenda dedicated towards change in India, the United States, and beyond. The AIF Clinton Fellowship provides a renowned platform to develop the skills, resources, and network needed to become an effective and socially-minded change maker.
