How to Apply

We are now accepting applications for our 2022 fellowship program!

Final day to apply is Friday, January 14, 2022.

More mentor organizations will be confirmed and added so keep an eye on our website & social media for more announcements!

We are still updating the list of fellowships that will be awarded in 2022. Some of the fellowships currently listed on this site have been updated for 2022, and some are from our summer 2021 program. Most of the latter are likely to be offered again in 2022; applications for these organizations will not be accepted until the position is confirmed for the new year. We will also be adding new mentor organizations so keep watching for updates!

We will update each position as soon as additional information is available from the mentor organization. Students do not need to wait before submitting applications for the confirmed positions. As more fellowships are added, students may submit additional applications without limit.

Take a look at our Summer Fellowship Positions.

How the Application Process Works:

Students apply through the PBF Fellowship Application Form and a copy goes to both PBF and the mentor organizations selected. Mentor Organizations decide individually when they want to start interviewing – that could be right when they get your application, closer to the deadline (1/14/22), or even after. Once the Mentor Organization makes a decision on who they want to hire, they are instructed to inform PBF Staff. PBF Staff will make the official offer to students as we explain the other benefits of the program and are able to give the applicants information about any other mentor organizations they're interested in. PBF staff will be totally transparent about what other organizations have been filled, pending, interviewing, etc. so applicants can make the best decision for themselves. Once applicants receive the fellowship offer from PBF staff, you'll have up to 3 business days to make your decision but can also accept on the spot.
