For Alumni

Welcome, NFP Alumni!

We are so glad to have you visit the new alumni section of our website.

We encourage you to keep in touch with us by sharing your news and updates. Would you consider mentoring a current applicant to a fellowship you applied to? Then please read on! Further down, you’ll find information about fellowships you may be eligible to apply for as a recent graduate and links to our recent alumni newsletters.

We hope you will make use of these resources – and please let us know if you have ideas for other points of connection!
