Nonprofit Fellows Program

2014 Nonprofit Fellows

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 20 - 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 Nonprofit Fellows program is offered by the School of Integrative Studies.  

The program emphasizes:

  • Personal attention from faculty.  Enjoy small sized classes taught by leaders in the academic and 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 offered just for students in the Fellows program.

Courses are held two days a week at George Mason's Arlington campus.  A stipend to offset some transportation costs is provided.
