Project Overview and Role
USAID and The Palladium Group are collaborating to offer two USAID Legacy Fellowships in memory of our beloved friend and colleague Anita Datar, who was tragically killed while on duty in Mali in November 2015. Ms. Datar had devoted much of the past 10 years pursuing global public health, particularly family planning and HIV prevention and response.

The unpaid 10-week fellowship is designed to provide fellows with practical and professional experiences in fields related to the work of USAID in one of its global offices. The Palladium Group will pay for transportation to and from the fellowship location. Palladium staff will also act as advisors to the fellows and contribute to program guidance. Content and location of the fellowships will be determined by USAID following selection of the fellows.
Responsibilities will be determined by USAID after selection of fellows.
