Gates Fellowships and Graduate Internships FAQ

Does the foundation have a fellowship and internship program?

At this time, the foundation does not offer fellowship or internship programs. As an organization, the decision was made in 2021 to conclude these programs as they formerly existed. This decision has allowed us to better align our internal resources to the highest and best use of increasing our impact today. We will be taking time to reflect and evaluate how best to rebuild these programs with sufficient resources so they can achieve their outcomes.
