Apply For Fellowships

Redefine your 9 to 5.

Use your skills and experience to help socially-minded startups grow their businesses. These social ventures are reshaping the systems in which they work by applying innovation and passion to their everyday — you can too.

EWB’s Fellowship Program is designed to help Canadian professionals gain experience working and living in emerging markets, and match social enterprises in sub-Saharan Africa with the essential talent they need to grow and scale.

EWB is recruiting Fellows for 12-month placements with innovative startups in Ghana, Uganda, and Kenya. The roles are not only for Engineers; we are hiring business analysts, evaluation officers, fundraisers, and more.

Program Notes

You must be a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident in order to apply.

Not a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident? Consider our Kumvana Program, which recruits dynamic African professionals to participate in a leadership development program. Applications for the next cohort open Summer 2019.

Due to the volume of applicants, only eligible candidates will be contacted. We highly encourage​ applicants to apply for more than one role as this is a highly competitive program. 

EWB Values Diversity

Engineers Without Borders is committed to diversity and encourages applications from all qualified candidates, including aboriginal persons, francophones, members of sexual minority groups, persons with disabilities, visible minorities and women. We will provide any requested accommodation to candidates with disabilities throughout the recruitment process.
