In 2007, the Blakeley Fellowship was established to provide financial support to ten students between their first and second year at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy who are pursuing careers with a non-profit organization in the field of international development.
Fields eligible for consideration include:
NGO Business Development & Project Financing
Micro Financing Private Sector
Small and Medium Enterprise Development
During the ten years that the annual summer Fellowship was in existence, from 2007 through 2017, ten graduate students were provided funds to work overseas for 8-10 weeks between their first and second year at Fletcher. Most of these students have gone on to build on this international public experience after graduation.
