Frequently Asked Questions

The Application Process

Applications for 2020 are currently closed, but the portal will remain open for the class of 2021. Applications received will be reviewed by a panel of Stamford-based business leaders & executives, who will select the pool of second round candidates.


In the Second Round, candidates will be invited to a private job board where private-sector positions within Stamford-based companies have been created just for Fellows to apply to.


Positions can be obtained in one of two ways: Interview with one of the partner companies on the Fellowship job board, or submit the description for a position in Stamford which you have already accepted. If you and the job meet all the requirements of the Fellowship, then you can be accepted as a Fellow.


After accepting a job offer from a partner company and starting your new role by August 1, 2020, you will be named as a Fellow and receive all of the benefits associated with that distinction.
