For Fellows (Students)

​If you are a student who is nominated to become a Harbor Freight Fellow:

  • You will receive an email with a link to submit an application

  • Complete the application with your Advisor’s help   

  • Once an application is submitted it will be evaluated, and you will be notified by email that you are either accepted, declined or deferred

If accepted you will receive an e-mail with links to submit the following forms:

  • W-9 – we cannot release a check without this

  • Media Release – allows us to place photos, videos etc on our website

  • Fellowship Agreement (to be completed once a Mentor is identified)

  • ImBlaze enrollment – Big Picture’s internship management platform

 

All the above must be completed before the 120 hours of the Fellowship can begin.

Finding A Mentor

 

You should work with the Advisor to find an appropriate Mentor. A Mentor may be a known contact to your Advisor, school community, or within your own personal network. A Mentor may also be someone you and Advisor are meeting for the first time.  

 

Set-Up Meeting and Fellowship Agreement

 

The Fellow, Advisor, and Mentor meet in person or virtually to discuss the terms of the Fellowship and complete the Fellowship Agreement. At this meeting, the ​Harbor Freight Fellowship Agreement​ is used to set goals, expectations and exchange logistics (e.g., scheduling and means for communication).
