Diplomat Fellowship Program - Apply Now

Diplomat CEO Phil Hagerman calls the Fellowship program “an inspirational hands-on opportunity for college students who want to change the world and have a transformational impact on the lives of others.”

It’s more than a summer program. It’s a life-changer, and a calling.

The Fellowship is a structured program that includes cohort meetings and seminars, a mid-project evaluation, and a final project presentation at the end of the summer. It is an extra-curricular program for which Fellows do not gain course credit. However, a certificate of achievement will be provided, as well as access to project funding opportunities.


A candidate must be a graduate student, an undergraduate student or a recent collect graduate (within six months of beginning the Fellowship). Students who apply for the Fellowship must have a specific social impact area of interest they are passionate about commencing.

Your vision can range from small-scale social challenges to global needs. You may also work on an “intrapreneurial” project—an entrepreneurial project within an existing organization or company. We do not restrict our applicants; we encourage you to follow your passion in creating social impact solutions.

The successful candidate will be a positive team player with the moral imagination to effect long-term social change, with excellent thought leadership, writing, research, communication and presentation skills.

Candidates must complete an online application with a resume, a project proposal, and two letters of recommendation. The project proposal should be a three- to five-page research paper demonstrating the following:
  • The specific program area you’re most interested in working with
  • A statement of your research interests
  • Why you’re passionate about the area
  • The need for the innovation
  • The description of the project
  • A list of any additional funding or necessary resources that may be needed

How to apply
Please submit the following application materials online. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis for acceptance to the Fellowship program.
Please attach the following documents with your online application:
  •  A PDF version of current resume
  • Project proposal (3-5 pages)
  • Two (2) letters of recommendation

The final deadline is March 31, 2015.
