7. If a Fellow accepts an offer, both the Fellow and Partner will be required to complete agreement forms prior to the Fellow onboarding at the organization. The Program Manager will follow up with the necessary forms.

Section 1: Partnership Requirements and Expectations Acknowledgement

Salary and Health Insurance

While Partner Organizations are required to pay the minimum salary, although if you have the capacity, we encourage them to offer a more competitive salary.

Partners are also expected to provide the same benefits that are offered to other employees, as our Fellow will be a full-time employee of the organization. The minimum salary levels for the 2022-23 Fellowship Year are:


Bay Area................................................$54,500
New York...............................................$46,500
Chicago.................................................$42,450
Washington, DC....................................$46,500
Boston...................................................$44,100
New Jersey............................................$46,500
Philadelphia...........................................$46,500

Partner Organizations are required to offer our Fellow's health insurance and to cover their premiums. 

Below are few options of what partners have offered Fellows in the past to meet partnership requirements (we recognize that organization capacity and HR limitations vary from partner to partner).

Option One.......................Health insurance offered; 100% of premiums covered
Option Two.......................Health insurance offered; salary raised to absorb premium costs
Option Three.....................Stipend/Reimbursement to purchase their own insurance
Option Four.......................Fellow has health insurance coverage from family or partner


Salary, Benefits, and Healthcare Information will be requested in section four, which will be featured in our Fellowship Position Directory.

Section 2: General Partner Organization Information

Organization Contact and Team
The organization's contact will receive information on the application cycle and any potential referral information. Should the organization's contact be someone other than the Fellow's expected supervisor, the Program Manager will verify that information before onboarding. Any supervisors new to hosting a Fellow will need to meet with the Program Manager for an introductory call, should a Fellow be placed with your organization.


why ask this? we want to address our applicants and discuss their materials respectfully





Giving us a number of team members will help us when discussing with candidates the size of the organization (some may thrive better on a smaller team for example!)
