Foreign Affairs IT Fellowship: BIT Foundation Virtual Info Session

About this event

The Blacks in Technology Foundation sponsors this virtual info session on the Foreign Affairs Information Technology (FAIT) Fellowship.

Funded by the U.S. Department of State, the FAIT Fellowship program provides a path to an exciting career in the U.S. Foreign Service through academic funding (up to $75,000), internships, professional development, and ultimately, an appointment (full-time position) as a Foreign Service Information Management Specialist (IMS). 

The FAIT Fellowship aims to attract members of minority groups underrepresented in technology, women, and those with financial need, who are interested in a technology career that makes a difference in the world.

In this virtual info session, you'll get details about the benefits of the program, the application and selection process, the timeline of the Fellowship, eligibility requirements, and more. Then you'll get a chance to ask questions during the live Q&A session.

Applications for the FAIT Fellowship 2021 cohort are being accepted now through February 1, 2021. It is a competitive application process, so now is the time to prepare. Join The Washington Center and the Blacks in Technology Foundation to learn more about this opportunity of a lifetime.
