Fellowship Industry Report

Publication date: 
December, 2020

In 2020, ProFellow, the leading online resource for information on professional and academic fellowships,partnered with IREX to produce the 2020 Fellowship Industry Report. IREX, a global development and education organization, administers the Impact Fellowships Summit (IFS), a growing network and U.S.-based annual gathering of fellowship organizations. This report comes five years after ProInspire published the first Fellowship Industry Report with the aim of creating a report that was reflective of the industry’s current status, needs and expectations.

This new research revealed that a growing number of fellowship programs have been established in the last two decades to provide professional and leadership development opportunities in the social and public sector. However, the industry as a whole is only in the nascent stages of incorporating impact evaluation, to measure the impact of the fellowship program in achieving the organization’s mission, and incorporating initiatives to support and evaluate diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in fellow recruitment, programming and staffing.
