The Benefits for Host Organizations

97% of hosts say their Fellow impacted a critical area of operations while 89% of hosts say that the impact of their Encore Fellows® will last far beyond the Fellowship.

How it Works

Encore Fellows® receive a $25,000 stipend for 1000 hours of work, typically part-time for one year. Host organizations cover the stipend and a program fee, craft the fellowship position description and manage onboarding and training for the Encore Fellow. An application is the first step in the process of becoming a host organization. There is no commitment until a match is made and accepted by the Fellow and the host. Once you submit your application, you will receive an email with a link to submit a Fellowship position description. You will then be contacted for further information
