Citi Entrepreneurship Fellowship Program: Introduction

The Citi Foundation and NFTE are pleased to announce that the application window is officially open for the Citi Foundation Entrepreneurship Fellowship Program (CFEFP). Together, NFTE and Citi have created this program to provide NFTE alumni with a pathway to meaningful and paid work experience. The CFEFP is an exciting opportunity for a cohort of NFTE alumni to be involved in the development and implementation of NFTE’s 2017 summer programing.

One NFTE alum will be selected per program office for a placement as a Fellow at their local program office. Fellows will meet and collaborate with other passionate NFTE alumni from around the country and local Citi business units over the summer. Additional Fellow responsibilities will include project management, program logistics, and opportunities to mentor current NFTE students as they progress through Citi summer programs. This is a wonderful opportunity for motivated NFTE alumni to receive professional development training, leadership training, and participate in a 4-day NFTE Alumni Leadership Summit in New York City. The CFEFP will reinforce the skills fellows have learned as NFTE students.
