Applicants must be a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident. Applicants typically have a master's degree and two years of experience or a bachelor's degree and four years of experience. Jurisdictions may require additional or alternate skills, such as outreach and education experience. Jurisdictions may set other specific eligibility requirements which are provided when new fellows are being recruited, listed in individual job descriptions accessible via the NSU application portal.
Prospective applicants may apply for more than one jurisdictional position, but a separate application must be submitted for each position.
