Fellowship Hosts
Matching with a host company
Fellowship candidates are carefully matched with participating companies based on the specific skills of the candidate and the preferences of both parties. Once matched with a host company, candidates undergo exclusive on-the-job training at their host company, gaining firsthand experience in the private sector. This real-world experience is augmented by weekly educational sessions for the cohort, held in a classroom setting.

A fellow who demonstrates progress and proves to be a good fit for their host company will have the opportunity to interview for an open position. Fellows will also be able to network with other companies within the fellowship program and interviews may be offered, given the proven track record of a fellow’s success.
The education component of the program provides training for fellows in various skillsets desired by employers, such as project management, influencing without authority, and strategic communications. This specific coursework strengthens their professional knowledge, giving fellows an edge in the civilian job market. At the conclusion of each week, the Corporate Fellowship Program hosts a “Fellowship Huddle” featuring senior-level guest speakers. This engagement allows fellows the opportunity to make meaningful connections with leaders in the private sector, while also learning from corporate experts in key positions. To supplement this learning, fellows have the opportunity to complete a certification track course of their choosing through our partner Simplilearn.

The 12-week program is held Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fellows attend an initial week of corporate training followed by 11 weeks of on-the-job training with their selected organization. Corporate training takes place Monday through Thursday with a day of mandatory classroom instruction every Friday.
