“We experienced a 111% increase in applications to the AIF Clinton Fellowship and 108 of the applicants noted that they discovered our fellowship through ProFellow. I was not only impressed by the high open rates and click conversion rates of our targeted email campaigns designed by ProFellow, but also the high quality of the candidates. ProFellow is clearly a resource read and utilized by highly motivated fellowship seekers who are difficult to reach on other online platforms. I also appreciate ProFellow’s fast response time and reliable follow-through.”

― Katja Kurz, Program Officer, William J. Clinton Fellowship for Service in India, American India Foundation

“Fellowship seekers are a niche audience and difficult to reach. Advertising the Congressional Innovation Fellowship through ProFellow allowed us to reach our exact target audience, and it attracted hundreds of prospective applicants, including over 100 highly qualified post-graduates.”

― Travis Moore, Director, Congressional Innovation Fellowship at TechCongress
