The Nonprofit Fellows are a select group of students who earn a minor in Nonprofit Studies through a semester-long immersion experience. The 20 - 25 Nonprofit Fellows are enrolled in the three courses and complete a 6-credit internship with a local nonprofit organization. The program is offered by the School of Integrative Studies in partnership with the Schar School of Policy and Government.
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 are held two days a week on George Mason's Fairfax campus.
