IE Nonprofit Fellowship Program

IE Nonprofit Fellowship Program

Fellowship applications for 2019 are now closed.

Our Nonprofit Fellowship Program is designed to identify emerging leaders among recent college graduates, and to enable nonprofits to benefit from their talent by exploring innovative expansions to their programs.

The fellowship is an opportunity for recent graduates to prepare for full-time employment in the nonprofit sector and to get hands-on experience working for a nonprofit addressing aspects such as: demographic or policy research; service provision and implementation; community organizing and engagement; event management; grant writing; volunteer coordination; financial administration; and media/communications.

Being a Fellow is an applied academic endeavor, with the ultimate intent to become gainfully employed by the host organization or by another organization within a related field. The academic component involves monthly workshops involving social innovation and nonprofit management.

Fellows benefit from: 1) placement at a nonprofit organization, 2) a financial stipend, 3) engagement with each other and with the Center for Social Innovation’s nonprofit development workshops, and 4) wider exposure from the Center for Social Innovation and its partners.

Nonprofits also benefit from having a skilled recent graduate who can help elevate existing work or support a new project or program.
