Spring Fellowships

About the Spring Fellowships

Fellowships with the Robert A. Fox Leadership Program during the spring semester typically run from late-January through the late-April. Students generally work 8 - 12 hours a week for their fellowship assignment.  These paid, part time fellowships are ideal for Penn students seeking civic-minded opportunities or for those that are interested in working on research intensive projects with innovative leaders. Applications for the spring semester fellowships are typically due mid-November and interviews typically take place during the week after Thanksgiving. To learn about the specific application timeline for each fellowship, please click on the information below.
