Idealist Feature: 6 Questions to Ask Yourself When Applying to a Fellowship

By ProFellow Founder, Dr. Vicki Johnson

Today, Idealist Careers published my latest piece, 6 Questions to Ask Yourself When Applying to a Fellowship. In a previous article, I discussed why fellowships are exceptional. Yet, there are three aspects of fellowships that make them unique to traditional jobs: fellowships are time-bound, they typically offer lower pay and benefits than comparable jobs, and they have a lengthy and time-intensive application process (similar to applying to graduate school).

The first question you should ask yourself is: Am I at the right point in my career for a time-bound fellowship?

Learn why this is an important question, and the 5 other questions you should ask yourself, to determine if a particular fellowship opportunity is right for you.
