Answers to Frequently Asked Questions Ignite Fellowship

How much does the Ignite Fellowship pay? When is payment issued?

Fellows are not employees of TFA, but they do receive an award for their service up to $1200, pre-tax, as a lump sum at the end of their Fellowship term (Dec/Jan for fall fellows, May/June for spring fellows). It is important to note that the amount of tax will vary depending on the individual’s tax situation and TFA does not give guidance as to how much a fellow can expect to be taxed (please consult a tax professional for more information specific to your situation). Fellows will receive this money via direct deposit.
