Is it okay if I turn 21 over the course of the fellowship?
You can apply if you are under 21 at the time of application, but will turn 21 by June 14, 2023.

Can I apply for more than one position?
Yes! You can apply to up to two positions. In your cover letter, please indicate your ranking of interest of the two positions to be considered. However, we only recommend this for situations in which both applications are equally as strong for you.

What are the salary and hours?
Fellowships are full time, with an hourly rate of $22.07, as well as health care benefits. Pay is subject to taxes and paid on a bi-weekly basis. Health insurance is offered if you choose to opt in.

Do I need to move to DC right away if I am offered this fellowship?

We will ideally be making offers far enough in advance of the start date that you would be able to relocate in advance. We are willing to work with your schedule but would require you to be available for in-person work within the first two weeks of employment.

I am graduating from a University program in Summer 2023. Would this make me ineligible or can I still apply?
You would need to be finished with your degree program by June 14, 2023 in order to be considered for this round of the Miranda Family Fellowship Program.

If I am applying to more than one position, do I need different letters of recommendation for each?
No, it is not necessary to get separate letters of recommendation for each position. However, we do ask that you keep in mind your recommenders ability to speak to the skills and demands applicable for each position. Should you choose to pursue separate letters of recommendation for each position, we will accept them.

Is there an opportunity for feedback if I do not make it to the first round interview?
Unfortunately, due to the expected influx of applications, providing feedback for every application may not be possible. However, if you make it to the first round of interviews, we will make every effort to provide you with feedback.

Can Non-US residents apply for a Miranda Family Fellowship?
Non-US residents are welcome to apply, but please note that Woolly Mammoth is unable to issue work visas at this time.
