I'm Interested in Becoming a Fellow

We are excited you are considering the AFA Leader Fellowship™ program. It's a lot to consider and contemplating the journey is just the beginning! Many AFA programs have intensive applications. Not the Fellowship. You'll do the work of the Fellowship in concert with a Coach as you develop the twenty-one leader competencies.  You'll do the work in your classrooms, clubs, jobs and internships. You'll develop a professional Portfolio and Board of Directors as you launch into your career. 

Students that complete the program should expect accelerated development, a broader network and enhanced capabilities across competencies.

Enrollment in the AFA Leader Fellowship is open to all  students who have attended at least one AFA Program.   You may join the program at any time during your freshman to junior year. The Leader Fellowship program is not additional work and tasks; you use the experiences of classroom, internships, volunteer and work opportunities to measure and reflect on your skills and talents. To support you in the development, an industry coach works with you to monitor and champion your development. You leave the program as a Fellow, with a professional portfolio, a network and the confidence to tackle any challenge. 

Nervous? Don't worry. You and your coach will chart the course. We will provide you a map and a lot of leeway to create exactly the kind of Portfolio that best suits you, your personality and the story you want to tell potential employers.
