Box Business Fellowship
What is the Box Business Fellowship program?
When students think about careers in Tech they think the only path is engineering. But it takes more than engineering to run a tech company.
The Box Business Fellowship is an opportunity for students to explore business careers in the Tech Industry. We're especially excited to build connections with students who identify with historically underrepresented groups in Tech. Over the course of one week, you will learn business essentials about different roles in business, with an emphasis in Sales. You will participate in daily workshops to learn business essentials and then practice those skills with the help of mentors. Our co-founders and executives will meet with you to answer your questions and share their experiences. At the end of the program, you will have insight into the career opportunities available and the skills to be successful in those roles.
What are the details?
The Box Business Fellowship will take place in our Redwood City, CA Headquarters from Monday, March 16th to Friday, March 20th.
Travel costs, room, and board will be covered for all participants.
Who are we looking for?
Our goal is to introduce new career opportunities to students. We especially encourage students from historically underrepresented backgrounds in Tech to apply, especially Black, Latinx, and Native American people, and women of all backgrounds.
Currently, you are:
- Enrolled as a senior in a four year college or university
- Planning to graduate by Spring 2020
- Involved in meaningful leadership activities outside of academics, such as volunteering, paid employment, athletics, campus clubs, and community activism
- Authorized to work in the United States
How do I apply?

Q: What is the application process like?
A: For the written application, we ask you to include your resume and also answer a few quick questions about your previous experiences and what you hope to get out of the fellowship. Our team will review the applications and conduct phone interviews to learn more about you. From there we will select our Business Fellows to join the program!
Q: Is there a cost to participate in the Fellowship?
A: Nope! We want to make sure everyone will be able to join. We will cover cost of travel, room and food during your fellowship.
Q: What if these dates don't work for me or I can't make every day?
A: We want to make sure you get the full experience of the fellowship, and so unfortunately, we cannot accommodate different schedules. We realize that not everyone has the same weeks off of school and are sorry if this opportunity does not work out for you. We hope to expand to multiple weeks in future years.
Q: When will I find out if I've been selected?
A: Final decisions will be communicated to all applicants by Friday, February 22nd. Then we'll take care of booking your flights and accommodations from there.
Q: What will I learn in the program?
A: First, you'll understand how a tech company operates and the different careers available on the business side.

We also want to equip you with the skills you need to start your career in these roles through workshops and practice sessions. Ultimately, we want the experience to be valuable for you, so once we have chosen our finalists, we will work with you to refine the curriculum to your interests.
Q: What happens at the end of the fellowship?
