Leland International Hunger Fellowship
The Leland International Hunger Fellowship https://hungercenter.org/what-we-do/leland-fellowship/ is a two-year program of the Congressional Hunger Center https://hungercenter.org/
The Leland Fellowship trains emerging leaders in the movement to end hunger worldwide. Each class of 12-15 fellows develops the skills needed to become effective change agents, advancing the goal of a hunger free world by strengthening host orgs and bringing greater food security at the field (in a global south location) & policy level (in HQ or regional office of host org).
Because this two-year Leland fellowship is funded primarily by the US federal government to support the development of future US leaders (per federal authorization) the program is only open to US citizens and permanent legal residents. Applicants who’ve received Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) are not eligible to serve as Leland Fellows at this time.

The application deadline is January 13th, 2023. Fellows selected for the program will begin their first year of the fellowship in October 2023.
