Fellowship Programs

Fanimal has created two Fellowship Programs that will allow animal lovers like you to explore animal-focused careers. During the course of this program you will learn about animal-related career paths and generate animal-focused content. For the post-graduate program, you will receive a stipend to attend a conference (up to $500). As a result, your contribution makes a difference to animals and fellow animal lovers like you!

Did You Know?

We have two different fellowship programs: a high school program and a post-graduate program. The 40-hour high school program takes place during the summer; 20 hours are synchronous and delivered over Zoom while the other 20 are independent, self-paced asynchronous. The post graduate program is for our returning interns or for individuals who have already graduated from college.  Graduate students are welcome too!

Overview

Once accepted into the program, you will have access to several hours of career coaching and will  contribute to Fanimal’s mission in a variety of ways, while learning about animal careers.  Some possible activities you could work on include:

  • Writing articles on animal-related topics
  • Produce videos
  • Create art projects
  • Help with special events and other outreach programs
