Our Application Process
Round 1 - Submit a Letter of Intent & Resume:
Candidates should fill out the general application form, write a letter of intent, and upload a resume. Candidates are strongly encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
Round 2 - Phone Interview:
Selected applicants will be invited for a phone interview with a member of the Foster America team.
Round 3 - Video Interview:
Selected applicants will be invited to an hour-long interview with a member of Foster America’s leadership team. They will also indicate preferences for specific fellowship projects.
Round 4 - In Person:
Selected applicants will be invited to an in-person interview day where finalists will meet each other, complete group and one-on-one interviews, and meet leaders in the child welfare sector. This round will require advance submission of a writing exercise.
Travel and lodging costs will be covered by Foster America. References will be collected and contacted in advance of Finalist Day.
Finalists will meet with representatives from the relevant host agency for final consideration and job offer. Final offers are contingent upon completion of the host agency’s hiring requirements, likely including civil service exams and background checks.
