Cultivating opportunities for impact through nonprofit board service

Golub Capital Board Fellows Program is a program of Kellogg's Golub Capital Social Impact Lab and is a rigorous, 20-month program that connects 100 top Kellogg students to Chicago-area nonprofits for a distinct opportunity in board service.

  • Full-Time two-year MBA Program first-year students
  • Evening & Weekend MBA Program students not graduating within the next two years
  • Full-time dual-enrollment students in the JD-MBA, MD-MBA, and MMM (MBA + engineering) programs at Northwestern University

These fellows serve as ex-officio board members for specific nonprofit organizations while simultaneously completing two courses in board governance at Kellogg.

Our Purpose

The purpose of the Golub Capital Board Fellows Program is three-fold:

  • To prepare Kellogg students to be socially responsible leaders through academic training in board governance and experiential learning through service on nonprofit boards.
  • To support nonprofit organizations by applying fellows’ professional experience and academic backgrounds to solve strategic, organizational and operational issues that enhance the work of nonprofit boards.
  • To build Kellogg's reputation for producing strong, socially responsible, community-oriented leaders while making a positive impact in the Chicago area.
