I've been out of college for a couple years, or didn't go to college at all. Am I still eligible to apply?
Yes! Anyone can apply. Previous fellows have entered the program with master's degrees, a variety of other post-undergrad professional experiences, or haven't gone to college at all. Relatedly, while not the norm, we’ve had fellows participate in the program in their 30s. If you feel excited about the fellowship and the position, that's all that matters.
Why aren't all of the positions posted yet?
Because host organizations have varying fiscal years, positions are finalized at different times. We'll post positions on a rolling basis through the spring until 20-22 total positions are open. You can stay apprised of new postings by joining our mailing list.
How long does the fellowship run?
Sitka and Anchorage programs run September - May. The Juneau program runs October - April.
What does the interview process look like?
Host organizations determine the admission, and therefore the interview process. As such, the interview processes varies by position and host organization.
