Apply to Host a Fellow

Project 55 partners are effective, innovative organizations committed to creating systemic social change. 

The Project 55 Fellowship Program places recent Princeton graduates in one-year, paid positions at high-impact nonprofit, community-based, and public interest organizations around the United States. In recent years, approximately 12% – 15% of Princeton’s senior class has applied for a Project 55 Fellowship, and the resulting pool of candidates available to our partner organizations is exceptionally strong.

For more information about the program and expectations for host organizations, please visit our What to Expect page. If you have questions or need further information about hosting a fellow for the 2019-20 cycle, please contact Caryn Tomljanovich at

Because fellowship applicants have access to a directory of possible placements throughout the application process, in order to attract the most qualified candidates we strongly encourage partner organizations to submit their position well in advance of the deadline.


The application for Project 55 Fellows will be open on July 16th.  The deadline for applications is December 3, 2018. You can start a partner organization application via the link below.

Please contact Caryn Tomljanovich at with questions.
