Mercy Corps Scott Simon Fellowship for the Middle East

Jump to Comments

The Mercy Corps Simon Scott Fellowship is a 9 month opportunity, offering a professional early on in his/her career the chance to contribute to the achievement of one of Mercy Corps’ FY 2012 strategic initiatives of market driven programs, food security, youth, disaster risk reduction, and gender integration. The Mercy Corps Fellowship is a tribute to the Honourable Simon Scott, a former board member of Mercy Corps Scotland. Simon was dedicated to international relief and development and had a lifelong love of North Africa and the Middle East.

This is an opportunity for a professional from North Africa or the Middle East early on in his/her career to help build communities around the world, alleviating suffering, poverty and oppression. S/he will play an active role in one of the targeted sector identified as a priority in Mercy Corp’s strategic framework and have the opportunity to interact with experienced relief and development practitioners and field leaders. The Fellow may be placed in any of Mercy Corps locations globally but preferably in the Middle East region.

Fellows aspire to become future leaders and innovators in community development and relief work to create a better world. The Fellow will also be able to participate in Mercy Corps’ extensive knowledge management tools and learn from, and contribute to, best practices across the Mercy Corps global platform. The specific assignment will be detailed after identifying the country that best matches the selected fellows skills and interest.
