    The Catholic Relief Services IDFP provides an overseas opportunity to those interested in careers in international relief and development with a faith-based organization. Fellows increase their overseas experience and gain project management skills as they contribute to the work of Catholic Relief Services. More than 80% of IDFP participants go on to become program managers with CRS.  These 10-month fellowship opportunities are based overseas in one of our country programs.  Fellows experience different facets of running a CRS program overseas. They are exposed to project management, business development, budgeting, working with donors, working with partners, monitoring and evaluation, and reporting.

    While we are unable to make a visit to your campus this fall, we would like to offer interested students the opportunity to participate in an on-line information session hosted by our team. We will be hosting two types of online info sessions this fall:

    Open webinars for anyone interested in the IDFP. These webinars will take place during specific dates & times in October & November. See the flyer with more information, including the schedule for the open webinars.

    Individualized webinars for specific universities, graduate programs, or classes with 10 or more students interested in the IDFP.

    These online information sessions are usually 30-45 minutes long. They are designed as interactive sessions where we discuss the program, provide application tips and answer questions regarding the application process, the fellowship year and a career with CRS. It would be great if you spread the word about our program amongst your other RPCVs as well.
