About hosting a fellow

Each JKHF Fellow is paired with one partner organization to complete high-impact work over the course of the Fellowship program. Fellows are paired based on experience and interest area. Successful Fellowship projects have key deliverables that ideally exist beyond the duration of the Fellowship and utilize the creativity and passion of the placed Fellow.
