Military Spouse Fellowship Program

The Hiring Our Heroes Military Spouse Fellowship Program (MSFP) is a cutting edge initiative that provides military spouses with professional training, networking, and hands-on experience in the civilian workforce. The professional development and direct connection to local employers offered through the program enable military spouses to quickly build their networks and gain localized job experience. Participating host companies gain access to a highly skilled and educated talent pool.

MSFP Program Details

The paid fellowship is 6 weeks in length and is offered in a growing number of host cities around the country. Fellowship candidates are carefully matched with participating companies based on the specific skills of the candidate and the preferences of both parties. Fellows then undergo exclusive on-the-job training at their host company, gaining new skill sets and an opportunity to showcase their abilities. This real-world experience is augmented by weekly educational sessions for the cohort of fellows, held in a classroom setting and/or onsite with host companies.
