Vermont Housing Fellow Program

VHFA is seeking candidates for its Housing Fellow Program for fall 2020. Candidates must be graduate students enrolled at an accredited program, with an interest in learning more about affordable housing careers. The program provides students with the opportunity to relate knowledge gained in the classroom to practical, real-world settings.  Weekly projects are tailored to improving and expanding information available to decision makers about Vermont housing markets and opportunities.

Fellows will be assigned projects that entail conducting housing research and summarizing results in articles for publication. The Fellow may also be asked to support public relations and housing program data projects, such as web site content development and data entry regarding building characteristics and rent levels.  All of the Fellow's work will be done remotely, with regular communication through email and virtual meetings. 

The Fellow will be paid at a rate of $15/hour, for 10-25 hours per week, depending on his or her schedule.  One fellowship will generally be offered at a time, for a 12-week period, for a total of three per year.

VHFA is intentionally looking to increase its diversity of thought and experience. Candidates of color, those from outside Vermont, and historically underserved populations who are interested in affordable housing in a rural state like Vermont are encouraged to apply.

Please contact VHFA’s Human Resources Director Steve Gronlund ( for more information or to apply. Internship course credits may be available through your own university or through University of Vermont’s Public Administration program.
