Encore Career Fellowship Program
Intel has worked to improve the experience of Intel employees as they prepare for retirement by sponsoring retirees interested in the Encore Fellowship program. Current U.S. employees who are eligible to retire have the option of applying to the Encore Fellows Program and receiving sponsorship from Intel as they transition into retirement. Making 1000-hour commitments, Fellows provide experienced talent to nonprofit organizations; they receive modest stipends; and they join a group of peers making this transition to learn about social purpose organizations. Similar to the Tuition for Teaching program, this is an alternative for employees to consider as they prepare for the transition into retirement.
Work host PAID Encore Fellowships
These are Encore Fellowships that are paid by the organization that is hosting the Encore Fellow instead of being paid by Intel. You’ll complete a high impact, capacity-building project, while learning about social purpose work and developing new contacts and resources. Fellows earn a stipend of $20,000 for a 1000-hour commitment, typically six to twelve months, half to full-time. ALL Intel retirees are eligible to apply.
Employees who have already retired from Intel or didn’t go through the application process prior to retiring aren’t eligible for the Encore Career program, but they can apply directly for an Encore Fellowship through Encore.org. 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.”
