YOU’RE MAKING A DIFFERENCE.

You’re already hard at work changing your campus for the better, making it a safer place for everyone. We’re ready to support you and your work – with guidance, access to experts, and a stipend.

Our fellows will change culture.

Breakthrough’s paid one-year fellowships support U.S. undergraduate college students to challenge gender-based violence in college life—and build a culture where everyone can thrive.

Fellowships run on an academic year calendar from September to June. Fellows will need commit roughly five hours per week to the program, in addition to a weekend-long orientation in early fall. Fellows will receive a stipend for their work.
