How To Apply

Each year, The Salvation Army (TSA) Fellows Program invites applications that will be considered on the basis of their contribution to TSA, their expertise, accomplishments, work performance and the positive impact on TSA from their professional development and shared learnings.

Scholarships of up to $5,000 towards course costs, travel and living expenses are available.

All applications must be made online using the Fellows Program application. Where this is not possible due to computer and internet access, please contact (at least a week prior to the closing date) and other arrangements will be made.
