Philly Fellows

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 four houses in vibrant Philadelphia neighborhoods. In addition to free housing, fellows also receive an $11,725 stipend, health insurance, a transportation stipend, and a $5,350 education award (upon completion of the program).

For more information about the fellowship, visit or contact Jenn Rineer, Philly Fellows’ Outreach Manager, at 215-609-4659 or .

The deadline is usually in February.
