Demographic Information
We’re committed to recruiting and selecting a diverse, fantastic group of Fellows. The following information will not be used in our evaluation of your candidacy. 

Recruitment Information
This information helps us understand where applicants are coming from and is completely non-evaluative!

Unfortunately, the companies that Venture for America works with are primarily early-stage and resource-constrained. They do not have the ability to sponsor visas, and therefore we are unable to consider applications from candidates who are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents

We regret this is the case, but we do hope to be able to consider international applicants in the Fellowship in the future. 
Reach out to Laila Selim, Director of Talent, at with any questions. 
The Venture for America 2018 Fellowship is a full-time commitment starting in June 2018. If you will not have graduated with your Bachelor’s degree by then, we unfortunately will not be able to consider your candidacy. Please do not click register below. 
Unfortunately, you cannot apply to the Venture for America fellowship twice in one season. Since you already applied this year, you are ineligible to reapply until our Class of 2019 application opens in August 2018. Please reach out to Laila Selim at if you have any questions. 

Technically, you are not eligible to apply. The Venture for America 2018 Fellowship is geared toward those who will have graduated with their first undergraduate degrees no more than 3 years prior to the start of the program in June 2018. 

Because our trainings and opportunities are targeted to recent grads with minimal professional experience, the program will not provide as much value for those with years of work or advanced academics. 
If you feel that you would be an exceptional fit for the Fellowship despite not fitting the typical profile, please proactively reach out to Laila on VFA’s Talent team at to make a case for your candidacy. Please do not register below.
