Fellow Nomination and Selection
Unlike other highly selective post-college programs such as Teach For America and Venture For America, ServiceCorps does not recruit applicants. Similar to the Rhodes and Marshall Scholarships, which require the endorsement of an applicant’s university, applicants to ServiceCorps are nominated by our Corporate Partners only after receiving a job offer. Once nominated, candidates may opt-in to apply for ServiceCorps.
The ServiceCorps application process evaluates nominees based on non-discriminatory objective criteria. The online application and informational interview help ServiceCorps to get to know the whole person: professionally, personally, communally.
