I recently graduated from graduate school, but your materials say most Fellows in the FELPS will have graduated from their undergraduate institutions within 2 to 4 years. Should I still apply?
Regardless of additional educational experiences, applicants should have graduated from their undergraduate institutions within the last 2 to 4 years. The fellowship is designed for emerging leaders who have not yet solidified their career interests with a professional degree and employment in a specific field -- for the most part, this means they will not have already pursued an advanced degree (Masters, PhD, JD, etc.). Many of our fellows choose to continue their education by enrolling in professional programs within a few years of completing the fellowship.
