As part of its historic commitment to social justice and responsibility, and in an attempt to match the talents and idealism of our students with the needs of our local and global communities, Grinnell College has created a number of post-graduate fellowship opportunities.

The programs provide students with the opportunity to undertake a one-year service fellowship supported by the College in the year immediately following their graduation. The programs are open for applications from as many students as possible, with no prerequisites or requirements except participation the year immediately following graduation. All reasonable expenses during the year of service, including transportation, stipend, housing, and insurance, are covered under these fellowships.

The fellowships are carried out in conjunction with partner institutions. Grinnell provides the funding for the programs; the fellows provide the labor; and the partner institution provides the service opportunity.

Fellows are currently serving in the following settings:
