FAO Schwarz Fellows include graduates of these colleges and universities.
We encourage fellowship and career advisers to learn more about the FAO Schwarz Fellowship. We know that students committed to 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.”
We’ve designed the FAO Schwarz Fellowship to provide an intensive, transformative two-year experience in the world of social impact and focused professional development. Combined with mentoring and a powerful network of alumni Fellows and social impact leaders, recent graduates can use the Fellowships to train for leadership roles and successful careers
Our Fellows have graduated from a diverse range of colleges and universities with a wide range of majors. All Fellows combine a strong academic record with significant leadership experience. We seek students with strong interest in issues of inequality and social justice.
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.
