FAO Schwarz Fellowship: Alumni by the Numbers
Fellows make an incredible impact during their two years with their host organizations and go on to do some pretty amazing things. From running for mayor to running their own therapy practice, from engaging students in designing and building schoolyards to leading an organization supporting youth in reentry, our alums’ careers truly run the gamut of social impact.
Since 2006, we’ve supported 73 Fellows in launching their careers in social impact. After the Fellowship, 59% of alums have completed or are pursuing graduate school. A few examples:
- Kayla Jones, MBA/MDiv dual-degree, Emory University
- Nick Mitch, Masters in Urban Planning, Harvard University
- Samantha Perlman, JD/MA in Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning, Boston College Law School and Tufts University
- Claudia von Nostitz, MEd Childhood and Special Education, Hunter College
About 41% of Fellows were hired by their host organization completion of the Fellowship:
And now, the statistic we’re perhaps most proud of: 95% of Fellowship alums remain working in the social impact sector.
