Application Deadline- FEBRUARY 15, 2019
Each year, a new cohort of FAO Schwarz Fellows begins paid two-year assignments with leading nonprofit organizations.
The Fellows work at leading nonprofit organizations in Boston, New York City and Philadelphia. These organizations are all deeply valued in their communities and have a strong record of delivering consistent results and high-quality services. Host organizations vary from year to year — and all have a proven commitment to addressing critical issues of social inequity.
The FAO Schwarz Fellowship is committed to investing in the professional development of our Fellows through a structured program of retreats, professional trainings, and mentoring.
Fellows attend two four-day leadership retreats each year to learn about the social impact sector, develop critical skills and build relationships with— and learn from— current and alumni FAO Schwarz fellows.
For many Fellows, the retreats are one of the highlights of their experience.
In addition to one-on-one weekly meetings with a supervisor, every Fellow has two mentors who offer support and guidance over the course of their Fellowship. Fellows also join a valuable network of current and alumni Fellows as well as leaders from host organizations.
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
The FAO Schwarz Fellowship is an intensive, transformative two-year experience in the world of social impact that includes focused professional development. Our Fellows are highly motivated, passionate recent college graduates who are committed to social justice.
They have proven academic excellence, demonstrated leadership in their college communities and are eager to immerse themselves in a two-year experience that will challenge them, train them and empower them with the skills and network they need to take a first step towards leadership in world of social impact.
HOW TO APPLY
Prospective Fellows apply directly to the host organizations.
The FAO Schwarz Fellowship chooses a select number of organizations to host Fellows each year, and these hosts are responsible for screening candidates, conducting interviews and ultimately selecting Fellows. We encourage you to learn as much as possible about the host organizations and review the job descriptions before applying.
Applications open each year in mid-November when we announce new host organizations and Fellowship positions.
Applicants must be college seniors at the time of application and be eligible to work in the United States for the duration of the Fellowship.
