Program overview

The Military Fellowship is an immersive work experience to develop valuable commercial skills and prepare for successful post-military careers. We believe everyone seeking post-military employment should have access to an immersive career opportunity prior to choosing their next mission.

Get a head start

You can participate in the program during your final months of active duty service. Military Fellowships are designed to maximize learning, acquire new skills, and establish a network outside the military.

Develop your career plan

Our talent development experts prepare your profile and pitch so you’re ready to interview. Then we match you to roles at companies that fit your skills, preferences, and values.

Invaluable commercial experience

A fellowship prepares you to accept multiple roles at your host company, but if it isn’t a perfect fit you’ll gain incredible commercial experience and deeper insight into your career goals.

Affirm

Affirm is dedicated to changing the way consumer finance works. They build honest financial products that help people prosper.

Their core product allows people to buy now and pay over time. Because of their technology, they can offer financing to more customers than traditional credit. Consumer finance is still very broken, but they’re only just getting started.

Affirm welcomes military fellows into our growing team as part of our mission to build a company that reflects the rich diversity of the customers we serve and that includes our veterans and their families. Max LevchinCo-founder & CEO, Affirm

Uber

Building something big together.

From how you get home from work, to how you eat meals, or how you move huge shipments of absolutely anything, the work we contribute moves the world a few steps forward. And that’s one of the best parts about working at Uber—knowing that the work you do helps shape the future.

One of my favorite things about interviewing with Uber is how open they were to the skill sets that I brought to the table, and not necessarily the jobs I had in the past. They were able to find projects that suited my interests and capabilities. Brendan MorinAir Force Space Operations Officer

Lyric

A real estate tech company reinventing accommodations the way ride-sharing reinvented personal transportation.

Lyric designs and operates locally inspired short term rental properties that offer a professional, reliable and delightful experience, far above what travelers get when they rent from an individual homeowner.

I never thought I’d be working at a tech company but the risk has paid off so well for me and it will for them too. Jared BlakeArmy Financial Management Technician
