What is a fellow and what is a fellowship?
Selected undergraduate students will be referred to as College Corps Fellows throughout the duration of the program. The fellowship refers to the year-long commitment and service completed with an external community partner.
As a College Corps fellow, you will be assigned an external community partner to work with and complete a majority of your 450 hours of service with this community host site.
As a College Corps Fellow, you will serve 450 hours over the course of the 2023-2024 academic year (September 2023 to June 2024).
You would select one of the following three areas:
- K-12 Education
- Food Insecurity
- Climate Action
This roughly equates to 15 hours a week.
As a College Corps Fellow, you'll receive:
- Up to $7,000 living stipend (throughout the term of service or up to $700/month) + $3,000 Education Award upon completion of 450 service hours.
