Become a Labor Capital Strategies Fellow in the Spring Semester
The millennial generation is eager to change the world, to build a more inclusive and sharing economy, and to regrow a sustainable planet. Young people are not just invested in society and politics, but they recognize the need to learn financial, legal and governance strategies to advance a fairer economy.
Recognizing this opportunity, Heartland Capital Strategies (HCS) and Georgetown University’s Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor (GU) met in mid-2016 to lay the groundwork for a new impact investment fellowship for college-aged students. The mission of the fellowship would be to identify and educate a new generation of capital stewards and responsible investors, and to construct a new, diverse talent pipeline.
Now in our fourth year we will, for the first time, offer students a ten-week, paid, Spring 2021 Fellowship opportunity to work virtually, part-time, while enrolled in classes. This will allow students to access hosts and projects that are not available over the summer. This will not replace our Summer 2021 Fellowship program, which will also be announced shortly, however it may coordinate with that program if students and hosts would like an extended experience that would go from January-August.
This Spring semester Fellowship also gives students more opportunities to earn academic credit for their work. Past Fellowship hosts have included AFL-CIO Housing Investment Trust, LiUNA, Ullico, KPS Capital Partners, Segal Marco, and Change to Win. Some fellows have gone on to have successive internships at their hosts, or even permanent positions. Please explore our LinkedIn Fellowship page to see where past Fellows are now and some of the organizations we work with.
Since the Spring semester is fast approaching, please do not delay in filling out your application and contacting Juan L. Belman Guerrero at Juan.Belman@georgetown.edu or Kristen Estell- Heartland Capital at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have. The deadline is December 13, 2020.
