Kiva Fellows

Since 2007, the Kiva Fellows Program has offered over 700 individuals a rare opportunity to put their skills to work in support of global microfinance. Applicants chosen for the program serve as Kiva’s eyes and ears on the ground, working directly with microfinance institutions (MFIs) and other field partners in over 80 countries around the globe.

We are currently in the process of making some changes to our program. The application is now closed, but please check back for updates frequently. We will soon be sharing more information about these exciting changes, along with a link to the application for the January 2017 class. In the meantime you can: Email us at with any questions.
