Insight Collaborative Fellowship Program
Each year, the Insight Collaborative Fellowship Program selects a group of exceptional Fellows dedicated to making a positive difference in the world and provides them with an opportunity to turn their passion and determination into action. Through intensive training and planning, Insight Collaborative teaches Fellows how to develop and implement innovative programs throughout the world in a series of three-month placements. Incorporating the knowledge and experience of local partners in the field, Fellows provide training, manage teams, coordinate projects, and help organizations address the needs of those affected by conflict.
The Fellowship includes an expense allowance to support multiple placements totaling one year, typically in three to four month blocks. Each Fellow is required to repay the amount of the allowance used through individual fund raising efforts, regenerating the funds to ensure support for the next Fellow. The first three-month placement is at the Boston offices of Insight Collaborative and its affiliate, Insight Partners. During this tenure in Boston, Fellows advance their understanding of the theory and practice of effective negotiation, communication, and mediation; meet pivotal figures in the field; attend workshops; receive personalized coaching; and see first-hand how international conflict management professionals operate in the academic, non-profit, and for-profit sectors. The subsequent nine months are divided into three foreign placements proposed and arranged by the Fellow.
