Impact100 DC’s Fellowship program is designed to provide a path to membership for women who want to make an active contribution and currently lack the financial resources to join. We are committed to ensuring the Impact100DC Community is filled with unique voices and perspectives. The Fellows program aids in our ability to fulfill that commitment, while supporting a woman’s philanthropy journey. The Fellowship Program is one year with the option of reapplying for a second year.
