Geographic Preferences
At this stage, our goal is to learn more about your preferences and flexibility around geography. While some placements may have partially or fully virtual options, we expect the majority of our Partners to need Fellows to report to central office or school site locations. We encourage you to be conservative in indicating openness to relocate, and welcome you to share your situation with us using the open response box since checkboxes can't tell the full story. There will be additional opportunities for dialogue about location through the selection and placement process.

We do our best to match candidates to placements in their most preferred location, but authentic geographic flexibility can open up a greater set of placement options.



In addition to your preferred location, please indicate your interest level in pursuing a CRF placement in other geographies. 

Would you be interested pursuing placements in the following cities? (selecting "Yes" below will indicate you are willing to relocate to or already reside in a city)
