About Fellowships

The programs provide networking, professional training and hands-on experience in the civilian workforce. Participating host companies harness the power of internships to find, evaluate, and hire the best military talent.

INTERNSHIPS
HOH internship programs range from six to twelve weeks and connect service members, military spouses and military caregivers with companies that provide experiential opportunities with the goal of hiring. Programs include:
