About Us

Humanity Forward Fellowships

At Humanity Forward, we recognize that this political moment represents an unprecedented opportunity to eradicate poverty in America through the bipartisan adoption of direct cash policies.

Humanity Forward offers an ongoing Fellowship Program that is not limited to graduate or college students. We seek a diverse cohort of Fellows from different backgrounds and experiences to commit to the Fellowship for approximately fourteen weeks. Fellows are assigned to specific departments for part time (10-20 hours average) hands-on training and development. 

The process to apply includes submitting a resume, cover letter and potentially interviews with pre-work such as a writing assignment. Applicants that are accepted and placed will be paid a monthly stipend of $1000 to $2000 per month during the Fellowship period. 

The Fellowship Program contributes significantly towards the important work of passing life changing legislation. It also provides a mentoring opportunity for our staff and an excellent learning experience for Fellows. The Fellowship program grows and enhances our community, however this is not an easy program. 

Our work is dynamic, sometimes challenging with a mix of reactive and proactive activity. Fellows should have a strong commitment to bipartisan solutions for social economic development that give individual Americans the opportunity to excel, such as basic income. In addition, solid writing, research and communication skills are required. College students or graduates are welcome, however this is not a requirement to be a Fellow. 

Most Fellow positions will be working remotely. All Fellows must be working remotely within HI, AK, PST, MT, CT and EST time zones. Department placements vary for each cohort, in the past there have been placements for Administrative, Operations, Digital Communications, Advocacy / Community Programs, Government Affairs / Policy and Development.

Applicants may indicate a preference for a specific department, however they may be offered interviews for other departments. It is also possible Fellows may be reassigned to a different department during the Fellowship period. 

Diversity is our most valuable asset and necessary for organizational strength. It is a fundamental policy of Humanity Forward to provide equal opportunity of employment to all applicants, without regard to race, color, creed, age, sex, national origin, ethnic identity, physical or mental disability, veteran status, marital status, economic status, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or any other legally protected status.
