Application Steps


If you are interested in becoming a Virtual Fellow, serving pro bono for the U.S. Department of State, please summit a one-to-two page resume to the Virtual Fellows Programs at VFP@state.gov.

Please note in your email any projects for which you would like to be considered and we will forward your resume to the relevant office(s).

Don’t see a project that fits your professional qualifications and interests? You are still encouraged to contact us. In this case, please send us an idea of the issues on which you would like to contribute, and we will share your preferences with offices that are responsible for those issues.

That’s the beginning. Once a host has decided to consider you, you may be asked for a telephone interview and more information.

If you have any questions at any stage, we are here to answer them.
