Massachusetts Promise Fellows dedicate a year of service to build their leadership skills and make an impact on young people in Massachusetts. Through the supportive network of the Fellowship, individuals gain a lifetime of experience as they develop their organizational and communication skills and grow as leaders of their own projects. Fellows receive a $20,000 annual living stipend, AmeriCorps Education Award, and free courses at Northeastern’s College of Professional Studies. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents, 17 years of age or older with a high school diploma or GED. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until filled. The term of service for Fellows begins in mid-August of each year.
