The Fellows Experience

The Charter Class of Franklin Fellows is being built now.

Be the first to experience this 9-month Christian leadership and discipleship program for recent college graduates. Franklin Fellows will work, study, serve and connect – building bridges that will help you glorify God for the rest of your life. As a Fellow, your time will be spent in a paid internship, graduate study, service in the church and the community and spending time in Franklin and Nashville, building friendships with other Fellows.
