PEN America, a nonprofit organization working at the intersection of literature and human rights, offers a unique learning opportunity for individuals who are passionate about human rights, free speech, and creative expression, and interested in how the nonprofit sector works. This fellowship opportunity will require a commitment of nine months. It is ideal for a student seeking to take a “gap year” either post-grad, between studies, or pausing undergraduate or graduate school. Fellows will operate from our headquarters in New York City, and potentially our offices in Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles. Applicants needing a fully virtual arrangement are also welcome to apply and should indicate this requirement in their application.
