FAO Schwarz Family Foundation Announces Hosts for Six New Fellowships – Feb 10

Posted by Mighty Writers on November 3, 2020

The FAO Schwarz Family Foundation has selected five social impact organizations to host the 2021-2023 cohort of FAO Schwarz Fellows.

The Foundation will sponsor six two-year Fellowships in social impact at five nationally recognized nonprofits. The organizations selected this year are The Barnes Foundation (Philadelphia), Mighty Writers (Philadelphia), The Museum of Science (Boston) and Year Up (New York City). Each will host one new FAO Schwarz Fellowship position. The fifth host, Jumpstart, will host two positions—one in Boston and one in New York City.

The Fellowships are two-year paid positions that develop the leadership skills of recent college graduates interested in pursuing careers related to social change. From education in the arts to education in science, from a focus on young adults to a focus on young children, from small and newer organizations to the larger and well-established, the diversity of organizations selected as hosts will provide the next cohort with a wide view of the social impact landscape.

The Fellowship is highly selective. To apply for the Fellowship, applicants must be college seniors at the time of application and eligible to work for two-years in the United States. Successful candidates will have strong academic records, leadership potential, and a commitment to social impact. The application deadline for the 2021-2023 cohort is February 10, 2021 (11:59 pm EST). The Fellowships are paid two-year full-time positions and include benefits. Visit the FAO Schwarz Fellowship website for more information. The fellowship starts in the spring/summer 2021.
