Prospective Babson Board Fellows are evaluated based upon their skills, work experience, passion, and commitment to meeting the expectations of the program. The selection committee is made up of Babson staff and Babson Board Fellow alumni who screen each candidate for the best fit for the program. Nonprofits receive copies of the selected Babson Board Fellows’ resumes to help determine the best way to utilize their skills and strengths based on the organization’s needs.
Nonprofits are asked to submit an application detailing how they could benefit from a Babson Board Fellow and must commit a Board Member to mentor and support the Fellow(s).
Typically, two Babson Board Fellows are matched with each nonprofit Board to further the shared learning aspect of the program. However, there are some instances where only one Babson Board Fellow will participate with a nonprofit Board.
