Congratulations to 2013 ProInspire Fellows!

The 2013 ProInspire Fellows in Washington D.C. and San Francisco Bay Area completed their Fellowship programs this summer.  All 26 Fellows spent one year driving forward mission critical work at their organizations.  The good news is that most of them will be staying at their organizations and continuing on after the Fellowship ends.  Fellows who are moving on are pursuing exciting opportunities like working fro Ideo, Millenium Challenge Corporation, and ProInspire!  All Fellows will continue to be connected to ProInspire through our alumni network.

So what are Fellows doing after their Fellowship year?
- 20 Fellows are planning to stay at their organization (77%)
- 3 Fellows are pursuing other opportunities (12%)
- 3 Fellows are still determining their next steps (12%)
