From Dr. Margaret Lamb, Fellowship Adviser:
Sometimes a rising senior or recent alum is looking for a post grad experience in the US that has some of the elements of fellowship (competitive, leadership training, networking cohort) but not formal graduate school. I’ll make notes of opportunities of this sort on this post. These sorts of opportunities are often advertised in search engines (including Handshake and GoinGlobal) as “internships” or “jobs,” as well as “fellowships.” The level of stipends and benefits associated with each program will vary greatly; read the fine print!
Americorps: Service commitment of many sorts of 3 months to a year. Living allowance, limited health care benefit, training, education grant. https://www.nationalservice.gov/programs/americorps
Coro Fellowship in Public Affairs: Placement in one of five high-impact US urban cities. Cohort-based, full-time, nine-month experiential learning program in civic leadership. Coro provides a stipend to help defray, but not cover, a fellow’s living expenses, and health insurance premium reimbursement. http://www.corofellowship.org/
Lead for America Fellowships: 40 fellows in North Carolina communities, 10 Hometown Fellows across the country. Summer training followed by ~21 months in local government placement. Stipend, housing assistance, health insurance, education grant, and summer institute training. https://www.lead4america.org/
