Alaska Fellows Program
Applications are Open - Review Begins March 20th
The Alaska Fellows Program Application is OPEN – Review of applications will begin March 20, 2023.
The Alaska Fellows Program is a fall-to-spring residential fellowship program that nurtures the next generation of Alaska-based leaders by pairing talented young people with strong communities and professional mentors.
Initially launched with a small pool of Yale graduates in 2014, the program now boasts alumni from 35 states and seven countries and hosts fellows in Anchorage, Juneau, Sitka and Fairbanks. Forty-six percent of alumni continue to live and work in Alaska for a year or more following their fellowships. AFP also helps Alaska retain homegrown talent by connecting born-and-raised Alaskans with high-impact opportunities in their home state.
Fellows serve with a dynamic non-profit or public-sector organization for the fellowship term and receive modest living stipends and housing.
- Fellows live communally, work closely with professional mentors, and make lasting contributions to their host community.
- Fellows attend opening and closing retreats as well as two facilitated “convenings” — events that draw together fellows across all sites to cultivate connections, friendships, and common identity.
- Fellows are backed by a team of community members who help make introductions, integrate Fellows into the community (e.g. Arctic Entries, Stardust Ball, Alaska Folk Fest), and share high-octane experiences in outdoor, civic, and community life.
