Dubois County Community Foundation says two local nonprofits will serve as hosts for student fellows through Nonprofit Fellows.
The Next Act and Young Life were chosen from a competitive application process in which nonprofits could apply for the opportunity to receive funding.
Nonprofit Fellows, a program of the Community Foundation’s BetterTogether Initiative, makes funding available for eligible nonprofits to engage interns from Indiana colleges and universities.
Upon completion of 150 or more service hours at an eligible nonprofit, the student will earn a $1,500 scholarship to the university they attend.
In a release Next Act chairpersin Leslie Hamby says the group has many projects and opportunities in front of them but, as is the case with many volunteer-run nonprofits, time and funding can constrain or slow activities.
Nonprofit Fellows supports two of the Community Foundation’s key objectives including helping build healthy Dubois County nonprofits and providing college students with real-life work experience in the local community.
Students may apply for fellowship opportunities by e-mailing a cover letter and resume by April 25th directly to Leslie Hamby of the Next Act, Inc. at firstname.lastname@example.org or to Jace Rasche of Young Life at email@example.com.
