Thank you for your interest in hosting one or more Social Innovation Fellows, and joining us in the work of creating a bigger, stronger and more diverse talent pool for the social sector.
The bulk of the application pertains to your ideas about tasks and projects to which the Fellow will be assigned, and the designated mentor(s) identified by your host organization, including a statement from the mentor. For more information, review the Hosting a Fellow page.
When you are ready to apply, follow the links below:
ELIGIBILITY AND REQUIREMENTS
College for Social Innovation places Fellows at nonprofits, government agencies and social mission businesses. Organizations must commit to providing a dedicated mentor, 24 hours per week of front-line and special project work, plus opportunities to shadow staff members and senior leaders, and adequate infrastructure for assigned work (e.g. desk, computer access, etc.). Visit the Hosting a Fellow page for more details about each of these.
Host Organizations are asked to contribute a $700 Host Fee per Fellow per semester that will cover the Fellow’s T-pass and provide a small contribution toward food and supplies for workshops and events.
If your organization is otherwise an excellent Host Organization candidate, but cannot afford the Host Fee, please contact Kim Warnick (firstname.lastname@example.org) to negotiate a discounted fee or fee waiver.
HOW TO APPLY
Step 2: Fine Tuning. A College for Social Innovation staff member may be in touch by phone or email with clarifying questions about your proposal.
Step 3: Selection. Host Organizations will be notified if they have been matched, and provided with information about matched Fellow(s).
Step 4: Confirmation. Host Organizations will have the opportunity to speak with assigned Fellows before the semester begins. Any concerns about assigned Fellows will be addressed in collaboration with the Host Organization’s CfSI Program Manager.
