RISE Fellowship Tracks
INP offers two RISE Fellowship Tracks:

 *(1) Career Track: This point of entry is ideal for those seeking employment and who would like INP's help to get a job. INP works with partner organizations in Chicago and the Twin Cities to recruit and match Fellows with entry level full-time job placements at mission-driven organizations. Fellows are hired as regular employees of the partner organization and work full-time while participating in the RISE Fellowship program.

(2) Professional Development Track: This point of entry is ideal for those who are already employed. Individuals already working full-time may access this professional development by paying a nominal tuition or asking their employer to cover the cost. There are no geographic restrictions for RISE Fellows entering the cohort through the Professional Development Track, and we encourage candidates from any geographic location to apply.

*Please note that our Career Track is at capacity for the 2022 RISE Fellowship.

INP charges a $1,500 tuition fee to participate in the RISE Fellowship Professional Development Track. Some scholarships are available, so we encourage all high potential leaders working for mission-driven organizations to apply.
