Orr Fellows are selected from a competitive application pool of more than 1,300 applicants.

Here's how it works:


Whether you’re curious about the Fellowship or already sold on it, submit an application to give yourself the opportunity to be considered for Orr Fellowship. It’s short and sweet. Just click here. Applications are accepted each August through September.


Within a few days after submitting your application, you will be asked to submit a virtual video interview.


Check out your school’s career fair(s) to meet current Orr Fellows and learn about the program. Whether you just want to introduce yourself or delve into the details, we’re always eager to chat. We also make a variety of classroom visits, so don't be surprised if we appear in yours.


You may be invited to one of several large mandatory Orr Fellowship information-sharing and networking events. It gives you a chance to ask lots of questions, hear from an Orr Board member, the Executive Director, or alumni about the Orr experience, talk with some current Fellows, and possibly meet your potential peers.


If selected, you will then receive an invitation to interview. This will be conducted by an Orr Board member or Orr staff member or an esteemed Orr alumnus.


The culmination of the Orr Fellow recruitment process is Finalist Day - an all-day event where you have the opportunity to interview with several companies. Shortly after Finalist Day, you will be notified if you have received an offer from a company and, upon accepting that offer, you will be accepted into Orr Fellowship.
