2024-2025 PULSE Fellow
What is PULSE?
PULSE helps increase the capacity of local nonprofits by connecting people with passion to organizations with purpose. We invite talented university graduates and other young professionals to partner with Pittsburgh nonprofits for a year of service and leadership. PULSE Fellows serve for a year beginning in August.
Who are PULSE Fellows?
As a PULSE fellow, you would serve with a Pittsburgh Nonprofit, live with other fellows in intentional community, and grow as a leader. Through all our activities, we will equip and develop you to become a young adult to be civic and community leaders with a heart for service.
What do PULSE Fellows do?
- SERVE WITH A NONPROFIT – Serve 35 hours/week for a year (August to August) in a Pittsburgh nonprofit connected to your vocational interests and nonprofit staffing needs. Check out our current Nonprofit Partners and some of our previous Nonprofit Partners.
- LIVE IN COMMUNITY – Cultivate community by living together with other fellows and sharing meals, household tasks, finances and learning experiences.
- GROW AS A LEADER – Participate in leadership training and development (orientation, weekly seminars, retreats, mentoring, one-on-one coaching, etc.)
What are the benefits of becoming a PULSE fellow?
PULSE fellows are provided with food, lodging, transportation, some reimbursable health insurance expenses, and a modest monthly stipend. PULSE fellows receive Personal Development Funds and are eligible for student loan deferment or forbearance. There are also DEI scholarships available and affinity group funds. PULSE Alumni also are granted scholarships at Carnegie Mellon University, University of Pittsburgh, and Chatham University for select Graduate Programs.
