MENAR Fellowship Program

The MENAR Fellowship Program facilitates intercultural exchange by coordinating one-year fellowships for recent American college graduates with nonprofit organizations and businesses in the Middle East. Some positions require fluency in Arabic.

NOTE: Applicants pay an application fee, and fellows must pay transportation/travel costs (some financial aid is available).

Applicants may be current seniors in college or recent graduates (anywhere up to 2-4 years of post-college experience is fine, although most of our posts are intended to be entry-level). The program is open to applicants of all nationalities; the only requirement is having graduated from a U.S. college or university.
