Seven students are headed to Omaha, Neb., in the fall to work for a nonprofit for a year.
That's because they've been awarded the Weitz Fellowship, a one-year paid position with the nonprofit of their choice, the Omaha World-Herald reports.
The Carleton College students will work at the Joslyn Art Museum, the Nebraska Appleseed, the Autism Action Partnership, and others.
"I think what makes the Weitz Fellowship unique is that it provides an entry level job that is designed to facilitate the fellows' learning and growth while also providing them with opportunities to make real, tangible differences for individuals and communities," an associate director of Carleton's Career Center says in a press release.
"The positions themselves are somewhat unique as rotationaltype roles in nonprofit organizations, which provides the fellows with opportunities to learn about many facets of nonprofit work, while also giving them opportunities to apply existing skills and develop new ones early in their careers," the director adds.
The seven students were chosen from Carleton's graduating class of 2023.
