Apply for a Fellowship


SVP widens and strengthens our connection to our community by offering opportunities to high-energy, talented people who support the SVP mission, can gain significant personal experience from their involvement, but who can’t otherwise meet the annual financial contribution. Fellowships fit our mission to develop philanthropy, improve our work with Investees, and benefit our community.

Fellowships are one-year renewable relationships. Fellowship opportunities are public, with a competitive application and interview process on a rolling schedule. The number of Fellowships depends on sponsoring Partners. A Fellowship involves required participation, but not a financial commitment to SVP, however a small contribution is suggested. We see a Fellowship as a stepping-stone to potential Partnership.

Fellows participate in as many SVP activities as they wish. They agree to a minimum five hours a month including some required activities and a variety of optional activities depending on interests.


Fellows are actively involved in SVP and may participate in as many SVP activities as they wish. Certain participation is required of Fellows, as indicated below.
