THURS. 1/13 – Weitz Fellows Program: Info Session, Meet Host Orgs & 2021 Carl Fellows

10 January 2022

Are you interested in nonprofit work in the arts, community development, education, law & policy, or women’s rights? Check out this Carleton-exclusive opportunity for eight graduating seniors in the nonprofit sector.

The Weitz Fellows Program will provide one-year jobs for eight Carleton 2022 grads at eight nonprofit organizations in Omaha and Lincoln, NE. Positions are paid, include benefits and funding for professional development, and will provide experience in all aspects of the organization.

You are strongly encouraged to sign up for the 1:1s with the organizations that most interest you. It’s the best way to learn more about the organizations, make strong first impressions, and equip you to develop application materials that stand out to those organizations.
