Fellows must reside within the continental United States, Alaska, or Hawaii. Military spouses that reside outside contiguous United States (OCONUS) locations are ineligible for this program.
Fellows must be available to attend all classroom sessions and have transportation available.
Fellows must have earned an associate's degree or have equivalent professional experience/certifications.
Fellows must be unemployed or underemployed. Unless they are expecting an upcoming relocation which will cause an employment gap, candidates with full-time, consistent employment will not be accepted into the program.
Fellows must be career-ready. They must identify a career path that matches their qualifications.
Fellows must have a professional resume, not exceeding 2 pages.
Fellows must be a current or previous military spouse. HOH recognizes military spouses’ careers are impacted by their service members’ military service. That’s why every HOH event and program is open to all military, veteran, and Gold Star spouses.
Applications accepted throughout the year with new opportunities available each month. Resumes of available candidates will be released to host companies on a monthly basis or upon request by employers to allow for maximum flexibility.
Consider attending Amplify prior to submitting your fellowship application. Amplify is an exclusive two-day event that leads a cohort of military spouses through intensive career preparation, professional development, and networking. Both in person and virtual sessions are available.
