This Department of State program will bring 250 entrepreneurs to the U.S. in October and November 2016 for a four week customized fellowship.
We need REVIEWERS to read and evaluate applications - you will be trained at the event!
Come out and enjoy food, drinks, and great company as you contribute to this exciting change-making initiative!
