The Nonprofit Fellows are a select group of students who earn a minor in Nonprofit Studies through a single semester immersion experience. A close-knit learning community, the 25 Nonprofit Fellows are simultaneously enrolled in the three core courses of the Nonprofit Studies minor and have a 6-credit internship with a local nonprofit organization.
The program emphasizes:
- Personal attention from faculty. Enjoy small sized classes taught by leaders in the local nonprofit community.
- Experiential learning. Students have a significant internship experience with a local nonprofit organization. Full-day field trips will take students to nonprofit organizations in Northern Virginia and Washington DC.
- Integrated learning. The faculty integrate learning across all three courses. The experiential learning from the internship is also linked to course assignments and class discussions.
- A community of highly motivated learners. Courses are open to only students in the Fellows program.
Courses are held on Mondays and Wednesdays at George Mason's Arlington campus. A stipend to offset some transportation costs is provided.
