What Happens If I am Selected to be an EBF Fellow?

What Happens If I am Selected to be an EBF Fellow?

Each year, we welcome a select number of new Fellows to our EBF internship program. Fellows intern at one of our partner companies and receive the support and resources of the Foundation.

If you are selected for the EBF internship program, you will be notified by the partner company and a representative of the Foundation. The partner company who hired you will discuss the start and end dates as well as the company’s hourly rate with you. You will begin working in May or June 2021 and be expected to work at your partner company every summer for a minimum of eight consecutive weeks (35 to 40-hour work week) until graduation from college. Other commitments (family travel, school trips, etc.) will have to be conducted before or after your work commitment with your partner company. If you have standing arrangements, make certain to discuss these with the Foundation if/when you are interviewed. As an employee, we will expect you to be a conscientious, dependable team player.

You are an EBF Fellow. You will be expected to participate in all Foundation activities for which you are eligible, including our Annual Summer Conference and the Launch Career Activation Program. As a Fellow, you are also eligible to apply for a need-based scholarship through the Foundation. You will receive a student manual which will further detail policies and expectations.
