You heard right: things have been very busy over at Philly Fellows Headquarters as we’re in full swing of recruitment for two exciting opportunities. We’re looking for:
1. New host agencies for the Philly Fellows program-The deadline to submit a letter of intent for new agencies interested in hosting a fellow for 2016-2017 is Friday, October 23rd (follow the link for the LOI form & full details). We generally have a competitive process when it comes to recruiting new host agencies. When selecting agencies to become part of the fellowship, our two most important criteria are:
- Whether the project will have a meaningful impact on the agency that leads to stronger and more just communities in Philadelphia, and
- Whether the project would be compelling to a typical Philly Fellows applicant and encourage them to apply for the program (project descriptions are included in our recruiting materials for prospective fellows).
2. Applicants for the new Data for Impact Fellows program– Philly Fellows is excited to be managing a new fellowship program called Data for Impact Fellows. Our application is live, and we’re looking for the most talented, data-obsessed college graduates we can find to spend a year helping nonprofit and public agencies increase their capacity to use and manage data. We are recruiting for 5 positions in Philadelphia and 2 positions in New York City, so help us spread the word! Positions will be filled on a rolling basis, so we encourage interested applicants to apply as soon as possible.
