Fellowship Application Form

In 2017, the Peggy Browning Fund plans to support approximately 70 funded Summer Fellowships in labor-related organizations throughout the United States. In 2017-2018, we will support one part-time funded School-Year Fellowship (at the Chicago Newspaper Guild).

Summer Fellowship stipends are a minimum of $6,000 per student for a ten-week employment period. In many cases Mentor Organizations will supplement the stipend. See each individual fellowship description for details. For the part-time 2017-2018 School-Year Fellowship, the total stipend will be $6,000 (based on 15 hours/week, 11 weeks/semester).

So far we have posted only a portion of the fellowships we will be supporting in 2017.  Many more will be added soon.

As soon as the fellowship application form has been activated, you may now begin applying for the fellowships that are currently posted.  You may submit your applications all at once or in separate batches.  We strongly suggest you continue reviewing this site to see the full range of options before submitting all of your applications.
