Why the Arkansas Fellowship?

Arkansas’s colleges and universities are teaming with accomplished and motivated students who are diligently pursuing world-class employment experiences with entrepreneurial, high-growth employers.

However, too few of these opportunities are with Arkansas-based companies. Many of Arkansas‘s fastest growing businesses struggle to identify, recruit, and hire the most promising local graduates.

 

The Arkansas Fellowship seeks to keep our graduates and promising business leaders at home in Arkansas.

Lead by an executive director & non-profit board, The Arkansas Fellowship seeks to attract and retain Arkansas’s brightest entrepreneurial talent by partnering with the state’s leading universities and most ambitious companies. The Arkansas Fellowship offers a two-year fellowship program to a select group of graduating college seniors—focusing on developing the next generation of Arkansas’ entrepreneurs and business leaders.
