Fellows are asked to assume leadership roles in the program in order to actively shape and continually improve the Fellowship.
Overall, Post-Baccalaureate Fellows receive broad exposure to the Foundation’s current work, including the areas of education policy, education research, and networked improvement science. In addition, Fellows are introduced to the deep expertise and large professional network of Carnegie staff and partners.
Benefits include: full-time, compensated appointment; generous benefits package; relocation stipend to facilitate your move to the Carnegie Foundation in Stanford, California; and more.
Fellows must have completed their bachelor’s degree within the past two years to be eligible for the program and be authorized to work in the U.S. The Foundation does not offer visa sponsorship for the fellowship program.
