During the last year Intel has worked to improve the experience of Intel employees as they prepare for retirement. One of the results of this effort is that Intel established the new Encore Fellowship pilot. This pilot is for current U.S. employees who are eligible to retire and it gives them an additional option as they transition into retirement. The program has the added benefit of providing a new source of experienced talent to nonprofit organizations. Similar to the Tuition for Teaching program, this is an alternative for employees to consider as they prepare for the transition into retirement.
Employees who have already retired from Intel or didn’t go through the application process of the pilot prior to retiring aren’t eligible for the Encore Career program, but they can apply directly for an Encore Fellowship through Civic Ventures. This program is not funded by Intel but may be of interest to Intel Retirees. For more information, please go to http://www.encore.org/fellowships. Click on the link that says “Become a Fellow.”
