Joining Worlds


Although similar in basic respects, the fellowships vary from country to country. Some are more structured and the relationships with the partner institutions differ. Each fellowship has its own challenges and strengths, as well as its own weaknesses. Applicants may discuss the various options with Shansi staff or the Returned Fellow. The names and e-mail addresses of former or current Fellows will be made available should applicants wish to explore the opportunities at each location in greater detail.

Fellowship recipients are expected to handle their volunteer assignments in a responsible and professional manner.
