Fellowship Experience

LEAD: Your Placement

Help move the needle for education organizations and students.

Your placement will anchor your EP experience. EP places Fellows at 200 partner organizations in 20 cities across the country. As a Fellow, you’ll be embedded at a school district, charter management organization, nonprofit, government agency, or other organization committed to transforming education.

During your placement you’ll apply the skills and knowledge you’ve gained from previous work to a new setting in the education sector. Imagine yourself helping a Partner organization make critical progress towards their mission, expanding their reach, or tackling other important work they couldn’t take on otherwise. You can’t find more meaningful work.


EP focuses on recruiting and placing Fellows in four key priority areas: data and analysis, strategy and planning, operations, and program and project management. Our Partners have particularly high need for expertise in these areas, which have high potential for impact with students, teachers, and families. While EP does match Fellows with select roles in human resources, finance, marketing and communications, and other functions, we focus our efforts on our priority areas. Learn more about them below.

You’ll be matched with potential placements based on your history of professional and academic experience, as well as personal preferences you indicate during the matching and placement process. EP works hard to match Pioneers with projects and roles where you can make the greatest difference based on your expertise. Our goal is to give you access to new opportunities that lay the foundation for you to lead in the education sector.
