Apply to Become an
Encore Fellow or Host Organization
Apply below to your regional program or one of our sponsored programs. An application is the first step in the process of becoming an Encore Fellow or a host. There is no commitment made by applying.
Candidates apply to be an Encore Fellow in their geographical area, rather than a specific opening. Candidates will be contacted for further discussion of openings, and their interest and skills, when there is a potential match with a host organization. Encore Fellows receive a $15,000-$25,000 stipend for a commitment of 1000 hours of work, typically part-time for a year, and education opportunities and networking with a cohort of their peers.
Organizations apply to host an Encore Fellow in their geographical area. After applying, hosts receive a link to post their position description. They will be contacted to discuss their needs. Hosts pay a $15,000-$25,000 stipend and a $5,000-$10,000 program fee, depending on location.
