Graduate School Fellowship: Overview

Are you ready to transform education?

We are now accepting applications for the 2015 Graduate School Fellowship!

The Education Pioneers Graduate School Fellowship provides talented business, law, policy, and education graduate students with the opportunity to make an impact and launch into high-level education leadership careers.

As a Graduate School Fellow, you will consult on a mission-critical project at a school district, charter school network, nonprofit or other leading education organization. Your work will help ensure every child receives a high-quality education. In the past, Graduate School Fellows have:

  • Managed a $600,000 charter school facility renovation
  • Presented policy recommendations to the Secretary of Education
  • Forecasted the effects of a school district's human capital initiatives
  • Designed professional development curriculum for a school
  • Conducted legal research for education-related litigation

To complement your project work, you will also participate in structured professional development workshops with a dynamic cohort of other accomplished leaders, expand your personal and professional networks exponentially, and be able to launch a high-impact career.
