Thank you for your interest in hosting a Fed Fellow July 1, 2021, through June 30, 2022.

Please note that this application does not guarantee a Fed Fellow will be placed on your board or committee. 
Pairing Fed Fellows with their host is very intentional and based on mutual interest from both parties, which more likely ensures successful long-term placement.

Expectations of Fed Fellow host organizations:
  • Agree to host a Fed Fellow from July 1, 2021 – June 30, 2022
  • Invite Fed Fellow to onboarding orientation
  • Invite Fed Fellow to join board meetings
  • Identify a mentor for Fed Fellow to meet with 4 times in the year, and be available throughout the fellow’s service on the board. This mentor should be a member of your Board.
  • Discuss process, fellowship, and feedback semi-annually with Dona Standel
