Passionate about alleviating poverty, closing the achievement gap, engaging in environmental issues, working toward healthier futures, and more? Consider applying to a New Sector Fellowship, a paid intensive opportunity for emerging leaders and students who are committed to the social sector. We have several Middlebury alums that have are both New Sector Fellows and Mentors!
New Sector matches committed, interested, and skilled early-career leaders with a nonprofit organization in Boston, San Francisco, Chicago, or the Twin Cities to serve full-time completing projects that allow organizations to more effectively achieve their missions. Fellows join a peer-learning community where they participate in training, mentoring, and coaching to build skills needed for social sector careers.
There are both summer and 11-month opportunities.
Summer Fellowship: June 6, 2016 – August 19, 2016 or June 13, 2016 – August 26, 2016
RISE Fellowships: September 6, 2016 to July 28, 2017
Each year, News Sector Alliance offers multiple application deadlines. Historically, the chance for admission has been roughly the same at each deadline, with slightly higher admission rates in earlier deadlines. Applying early also means knowing your decision sooner! The following are the 2016-2017 program deadlines:
- December 1 – applicants for this deadline will know their decision by January 29
- February 1 – applicants for this deadline will know their decision by April 1
- April 1 – applicants for this deadline will know their decision by May 16
- June 1 (RISE only) – applicants for this deadline will know their decision by July 15
