The Kitamba Fellowship is a part-time 6-7 week paid program for Associates, Bachelors, and Master’s degree candidates. The Kitamba Fellowship will launch virtually at the end of summer and continue into the early fall to accommodate student schedules. Sessions will be held after typical school and work hours (after 5 pm ET) to ensure participants can take classes or fulfill other full-time work commitments. Students will receive a stipend for their participation.
During the program, students will meet weekly (90-120 min sessions). The program will provide broad exposure to consulting and Kitamba-developed tools (e.g., Bento). Sessions will cover a wide breadth of education topics and will include skill development in the following areas:
- Conducting research and data analysis
- Professional writing and communications
- Foundational project management
- Developing presentation materials (Google and Microsoft Suite)
Fellows will have an opportunity to complete a capstone project to apply the resources and skills they have learned throughout the Fellowship to a problem of practice. Students will also have formal opportunities to connect with Kitamba staff and leaders from across the education sector via virtual mentorship opportunities.
