Support for big ideas and inspired collaborations

If you have a passion for service and the drive to turn your inspiration into a tangible benefit for others, we encourage you to explore our fellowships. We’ve organized a variety of opportunities to help you realize your vision locally, nationally, or globally.

How fellowships work

Fellowships support your work with community-focused organizations: nonprofits, government offices, aid agencies, schools, for-profit social enterprises, student-initiated service enterprises, and others. If in doubt, ask!

Fellows typically receive a stipend, which helps cover living and travel expenses. Each fellowship has its own requirements, however, so explore the options below to find the one that best suits you and your project.
