Find Non-Profit Fellowships

What is a fellowship?

While you may be familiar with academic fellowships, there are also paid post-graduation service fellowships!  Many non-profit organizations across the country offer short-term (one or two years) opportunities to new and recent graduates. These fellowships provide a valuable experience to someone attempting to enter the non-profit field in a variety of issue areas.

Are fellowships paid opportunities?

Yes! Fellowships generally offer a stipend or salary, health benefits and an education award.
