What advice do you have for students who want to change the world? Who have the imagination and the drive to create meaningful social change?
What’s their next step?

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

FELLOW BACKGROUNDS

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.

“The Fellowship has had a huge impact on my personal and professional development. I’ve gained skills, mentors and an incredible group of friends. I hope to give back a fraction of what it has and continues to give to me.”
