Fellow Development is an experiential learning program that "develops" our talented and motivated Melton Fellows into "Global Citizens."

The Melton Foundation conducts events worldwide and primarily in the countries where we have partner universities: the United States, Ghana, Chile, China, Germany, and India. Our annual Global Citizenship Conference takes place annually, and rotates to supported university every six years. We hold "Senior Fellow" (alumni) events as well as training events. New Fellows take part in a three-day workshop each March in Germany. The Global Citizenship Conference is a weeklong event with focus on learning and community impact. It is hosted by one of our partner universities and carries over many of the successful learning and team-building features of 20 years of Symposia history. The Melton Foundation also hosts 3-4 day workshops that include site visits and opportunities for Melton Fellows to network with each other and outside experts and local hosts, as well as a weeklong service project called the "Deep Dive" with a team of Melton Fellows in collaboration with a partner organization.
