Alamo Fellows logo: Talent STEMS from here
Sustainable Workforce Pipeline.

The future of San Antonio's economy depends on a sustainable workforce pipeline. That's precisely why greater:SATX is launching a new talent retention initiative, Alamo Fellows, to support our region's postsecondary students students by equipping them with the social connections and professional capacity to build amazing careers here in San Antonio.

As a first-generation inclusive program, we are focused on building diverse, inclusive, and equitable access to professional opportunities for talent in San Antonio across all our workforce development initiatives. As trailblazers in their families and communities, many first-generation students navigate their educational journeys with less access to the social and cultural capital than students that come from multiple generations of college-goers. San Antonio colleges and universities serve more first-generation college students than any other metro area in the US.

How It Works

The Program

The Alamo Fellows program supports students’ professional development by increasing their connections in our city and community. The program will expose fellows to a variety of non-profit, public, and private organizations that lead economic growth in our city.

Alamo Fellows creates the following kinds of connections for students:

Community: Fellows will engage with community-based leaders and organizations that will expose students to the great work being done to support people in our community and their well-being.

Career: Fellows will intern with a local company that aligns with their majors and career aspirations in STEM fields. STEM includes majors in the Sciences, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics but also consists of the social sciences such as anthropology and psychology and also business majors that are interested in data analytics and quantitative methods/reasoning.

Social: Throughout the fellowship, students will engage in various workshops, tours, keynote presentations, mixers, and events intended to increase their networks and exposure to our city.

Applications are now closed. Please check back in the Spring of 2024 to apply for our next cohort.
