Philly Fellows is a one-year post-graduate fellowship program that connects top graduates of Philadelphia-area colleges with meaningful positions where they can make a difference in the city. The program offers an exciting transition from college to the community where, together with their peers, fellows can gain knowledge, contribute talent, and develop leadership while experiencing the best of Philadelphia.
Fellows work 40 hours/week at a partnering non-profit agency that captures their interest in a position where they can build capacity and develop new professional skills. In addition, fellows receive leadership and professional development training throughout the year and have regular opportunities to engage in their communities and expand their social and professional networks.
Fellows live together in one of several houses in vibrant Philadelphia neighborhoods. In addition to free housing, fellows also receive a $12,311 living stipend, health insurance, student loan forbearance, and a $5,550 education award (upon completion of the program) through AmeriCorps VISTA. Fellows also receive professional development programming.
The deadline for fellow applications is usually at the end of January for fellowships that begin the following summer.
