Application Process

What is the application process?

  • A candidate reviews all the partner organizations’ open roles and applies to those that best match their skill sets and interests. Next, they will receive an email inviting them to answer a series of short-answer questions, providing them the opportunity to not only showcase the issues they are passionate about but also explain the type of non-profit work that best helps them achieve their individual professional development and career goals.
  • Every application is reviewed individually by Stand Together Fellowships staff. We then invite successful candidates to schedule a call to discuss which current openings most closely match their skillsets and interests. We’ll use that initial contact to verify the information and preferences shared in the application, help candidates get better connected to the impact of our philanthropic community’s work, and answer any questions.
  • Partner organizations will review the candidate’s application materials and invite the candidates of their choice to interview for their roles. Every partner organization may have a slightly different interview process and timeline for making their hiring decision.
  • Upon successfully obtaining an offer from a partner, the candidate’s last step is participating in the admissions interview with Stand Together Fellowships staff, which will determine the final admissions decision. Receiving an offer from a partner organization and interviewing successfully with Stand Together Fellowships are both prerequisites to being officially admitted into an educational program.

Please note that as we review applications and conduct interviews on a rolling basis, the candidates who apply earliest have the advantage of more time to search for their ideal role.
