Connect with Current FAO Schwarz Fellows

We host several online info sessions during the application cycle as well as “Ask Me Anything” events on Instagram.

These sessions are the best way to meet current Fellows and learn about the Fellowship experience. Prospective Fellows as well as college career and fellowship advisers are encouraged to attend.

Learn how we select Fellows and what we’re looking for in a candidate. You’ll hear directly from current FAO Schwarz Fellows, alumni Fellows, and Executive Director Priscilla Cohen. Hear how Fellows use this experience to launch a career in social impact and ask questions about direct service and strategic projects. Each info session includes lots of time for questions.

How to Participate

We use Zoom for our online info sessions. If you aren’t familiar with Zoom, you can learn more by visiting their website.

We’ll email you a Zoom link before the session. Please join using the link so you can see the presentation slides.
