Fellows work twenty hours per week for forty weeks from September 2019 through June 2020. The pay is $15.50/hour ($12,400 for the full term). The goal of the Fellowship Program is to nurture future leaders for the field. Fellows also provide valuable support as well as fresh insight and creativity to our team while getting an in-depth introduction to work in the nonprofit literary field. These fellowships are perhaps best suited to graduate students and individuals who have recently completed a graduate degree; however, others have also proven to be terrific fellows. All qualified and motivated candidates will be considered.
