Apply to Become an
Encore Fellow or Host Organization

Apply to our National Program for opportunities to host a Fellow remotely or be a Fellow remotely. 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™ typically 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 typically pay a $15,000-$25,000 stipend and a $6,000-$10,000 program fee, depending on location.
