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 EBF.


If you are selected as an EBF Fellow at one of our partners, you will be notified by the partner company and an EBF staff member. 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 2022 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 EBF and your partner company if/when you are interviewed. As an employee, we will expect you to be a conscientious, dependable team player.

Additionally, if you are selected as an EBF Fellow, you will be expected to participate in all EBF 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 EBF. You will receive a student manual which will further detail policies and expectations.

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely and determine, in conjunction with our partners, any affects it may have on Summer 2022 internships. We are planning to have a full slate of internships, which are expected to be primarily in person, but might be remote/virtual as well, depending on how the COVID-19 situation evolves.
