Basic Information

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, permanent residents, or DACA holders. We regret this is the case, but we do hope to be able to consider international applicants in the Fellowship in the future. If you have any questions, contact us at

To be eligible to apply for this year’s Fellowship, you must have completed an undergraduate Bachelor’s degree by June 2019. Our Fellowship designed for recent college grads, so those with three or more years of professional or post-graduate experience are not eligible to apply. If you graduated before Spring 2016 but feel very strongly that VFA is the right next step for you, contact us at
