At Vector Space, we know that everyone has the potential to be a maker. If you are passionate about what we do but cannot afford our membership fee, we invite you to apply for the Maker Fellowship.
This six-month program is designed to get you started on a successful path of making. Our goal is for you to use these six months to improve your own skillset, contribute to the makerspace, and connect with other members.
We will provide all the benefits of membership, including 24/7 access to our tools and technology for your art, hobbies, or small business when you commit to growing our community by improving our spaces, helping with projects, mentoring or instructing fellow members or visitors, or hosting member meetups to share your knowledge.
We are looking for flexible and dedicated individuals that share our value of knowledge, learning, and making. College students and recent grads (must be age 18+), lifelong learners, retirees, artists, aspiring entrepreneurs, builders, and tinkerers are all encouraged to apply. This is a wonderful opportunity for folks who would love to be part of our community in exchange for time and talent. This is an opportunity to form business and network connections as well.
This is a needs-based fellowship intended to ease the financial burden of a maker with limited income. In order to qualify, your household income must fall within the Very Low or Extremely Low income brackets as defined by the department of Housing and Urban Development.
During the six month fellowship, accepted fellows will be expected to meet monthly with a mentor/advisor member, attend member meetings on the third Wednesday of each month at 7pm, and present to the Board of Directors at the completion of the fellowship. Fellows will follow member safety protocols and adhere to the member agreement, and receive all of the benefits of membership.
To apply, please complete the form below and you will be contacted for an interview. Thank you for your interest in the Vector Space Maker Fellowship!
