Education Pioneers Fellowship

Return to Fellowship Search

The Education Pioneers Fellowship provides exceptional professionals with stepping stones into education leadership careers that solve problems outside the classroom so that teachers and students can succeed inside the classroom. The Fellowship has a summer track and a career track.

The Fellowship's summer track is a 10-week summer experience that previews the impact you can make in the education sector and lays the foundation you need to become a lifelong leader. The summer track might be right for you if you're a current graduate student seeking a meaningful summer experience; entering graduate school in the fall and want to get diverse pre-graduate school experience; or a professional looking to explore the education space and make a career transition with a short-term opportunity.

The Fellowship's career track is an on-ramp to a leadership career in education — offering you the right role, the right knowledge, and the right connections to ensure you thrive. The career track might be right for you if you're a graduate student finishing your degree and looking for full-time opportunities; an analyst, leader, or manager looking to enter the education sector for the first time; or already working in education, but looking to transition roles and impact a new education organization.
