Named in honor of one of Bennington’s founders, William Heard Kilpatrick, the fellowship program appoints members of the graduating class to key areas of the College’s administration. In addition to one- or two-year, full-time staff appointments beginning July 1 of their graduating year, fellows receive professional mentorship by members of Bennington’s senior administration throughout the program and broad exposure to a career in higher education and nonprofit management.
This year’s open Kilpatrick Fellow positions are in the following offices: Admissions and the Office of the President.
Apply to become a Kilpatrick fellow by April 18. Candidates will be considered based on the strength of their academic work, their contributions to the College, and other qualifications. Fellows will be named in early May, 2018.
