Eligibility Requirements and Selection Criteria
Duration and Compensation
The Fellowship generally lasts two years from the date of entry into the program. An annual class of Fellows will typically begin in mid-July. Specific entry and completion dates are based on Foundation requirements and individual considerations. Employment with the Foundation is considered to be "at-will." Colorado is an "at-will" state, meaning that employees and employers may voluntarily enter into and cease employment agreements at any time.
Starting annual salary is $30,000. However, post-undergraduate work experience and/or education is considered to determine salary level. Benefits are competitive.
