Become A Harbor Freight Fellow

Fellows pursue a serious investigation of an internship under the mentor-ship of a professional in the field. Fellows pursuing mentor-ships through school or community based programs must elicit the support of an Advisor (usually a Teacher or Career Counselor) at that organization, and the Advisor can then submit a Nomination Form HERE.
