We’re now accepting applications for the 2021 CUP Fellowship for Change in Design!

The Fellowship is a paid, year-long, full-time, training program designed to promote and support individuals in gaining the skills, contacts, and experience to help them excel in their design careers.

The Fellow works at CUP full-time, collaborating on our community-engaged design projects as part of the CUP team, working as an in-house designer, and participating in mentoring opportunities.

The Fellowship is an initiative to support the development of a pipeline of talented individuals from historically under-represented communities into the design fields, and to dismantle the systemic biases that stand in the way of their advancement as leaders in these fields.

The selected Fellow will receive a stipend of $40,000 (paid in monthly installments), along with free health insurance benefits, a flexible leave policy, and a small budget for professional development activities.

The 2021 Fellow will be selected through a competitive, juried process and will work with CUP from July 2021–June 2022. This year’s jurors are: Carly Ayres, UX Community & Culture at Google Design, Wael Morcos, partner at Morcos Key, and Elijah Bobo, CUP’s 2019 Fellow for Change in Design.

Applications should include:

  • A cover letter
  • A current resume
  • A portfolio of your design work
  • A list of 3 references

Applications are due by Monday, April 12th at noon, EST through Submittable.
