Students committed to working in social justice and equality have long sought domestic fellowship opportunities in the social impact or nonprofit sector—fellowships that will challenge them, train them and empower them to “lead the change.”
But such programs are uncommon, especially programs that include a living wage.
The FAO Schwarz Fellowship is a prestigious, paid Fellowship designed specifically for future social impact leaders. The Fellowship offers an intensive, transformative two-year experience in the world of social impact. The program includes focused professional development, mentoring and a powerful network of alumni Fellows and social impact leaders.
Recent graduates who qualify can use the Fellowship experience to develop leadership skills and launch successful careers in social change.
Applicants must be college seniors at accredited four-year institutions at the time of application and be eligible to work in the United States for the duration of the Fellowship.
Successful applicants have a strong interest in issues of inequality and social justice as well as a strong academic record and significant leadership experience. Our Fellows have graduated from a diverse range of colleges and universities with a wide range of majors.
