Corporate Fellowship Program

The Hiring Our Heroes Corporate Fellowship Program (CFP) is an innovative program that provides transitioning service members with professional training and hands-on experience in the civilian workforce. The professional development offered through the program prepares candidates for a smooth transition into meaningful civilian careers. Participating corporations benefit by gaining access to the best and brightest transitioning service members, while also developing a more comprehensive understanding of the veteran job market.

In select locations, the fellowship program is offered to military spouses and veterans.


CFP Timeline

The fellowship features a 12-week syllabus and runs three times a year at select military installations and in host cities around the country. Each cohort consists of 15–30 active duty service members and may also include veterans and military spouses in select locations. Fellowship candidates are carefully matched with participating companies based on the specific skills of the candidate and the preferences of both parties. Candidates then 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.
