Are you a hard worker? A person who’s excited about problem-solving, who cares deeply about community and social justice and achieving real goals? Are you a dreamer, and incredibly practical, tough, resilient and persistent?
Each year, a new cohort of FAO Schwarz Fellows begins paid two-year assignments with leading nonprofit organizations.
FELLOWS AT WORK
The Fellows work at leading nonprofit organizations in Boston, New York City and Philadelphia. These organizations are all deeply valued in their communities and have a strong record of delivering consistent results and high-quality services. Host organizations vary from year to year — and all have a proven commitment to addressing critical issues of social inequity.
What We’re Looking For
The FAO Schwarz Fellowship is an intensive, transformative two-year experience in the world of social impact that includes focused professional development. Our Fellows are highly motivated, passionate recent college graduates who are committed to social justice.
Successful candidates have proven academic excellence, demonstrated leadership in their college communities and are eager to immerse themselves in a two-year experience that will challenge them, train them and empower them with the skills and network they need to take a first step towards leadership in world of social impact.
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.
How To Apply
Prospective Fellows apply directly to the host organizations for the next cohort.
Applications open each year in early November when we announce new host organizations and Fellowship positions.
Online Info Sessions
We host several online info sessions throughout the year for interested students and college advisors who want to learn more about the Fellowships. Please join us by selecting a date and registering in advance. We’ll send you call in instructions in an email.
