Fellowship Program

The Resilience Youth Network Fellowship program is a five-week summer Fellowship for high school students in Nepal. Twelve Fellows are selected for the Fellowship program per year, engaging in Zoom sessions with topic experts from development, academia, and philanthropy. In addition to attending these series of lectures, Fellows complete capstone projects for publication on our site.
