Sex Worker Giving Circle Fellowship Application

Thank you for considering becoming a Sex Worker Giving Circle Fellow! Please read over the application materials before filling out this form.

You *must* live within two hours of the NYC area and be able to attend all meetings in person in order to participate.

Please note that Fellows may not apply for grants from the same circle that they participate in.

We’ll be carefully reviewing candidates to make sure we have a great mix of experiences, identities, and skills in the Giving Circle.

We're doing this in part because we are centering people most impacted by oppression in this giving circle and in our work; in particular Black people, Indigenous people, and people of color; immigrants and undocumented people; trans and GNC people; working class and low income people; people with experience of street-based work; chronically ill and disabled people, people with substance use experiences; and people with experience with the criminal legal system.

We expect to receive a lot of fabulous applications, so because of size limitations as well as the value of having a range of backgrounds and experiences in the mix, we may not be able to accept everyone as Fellows this time around. We’re grateful for the time it takes to fill out this application and for the magic each one of you brings to the table and we’ll follow up with each of you personally to let you know about our decision.

Applications must be received by 11:59 pm Eastern Time on Sunday, April 15. We may follow up with you to schedule a one-to-one phone call to get to know you a little better. Invitations to join the giving circle will be made by April 25.

This form uses secure encryption to keep your information safe. For more information about our confidentiality practices, please see the application materials.

If you do not feel comfortable answering these questions online (which we totally understand!), or if you have any other questions, please email us at (or for super high levels of encryption) to talk via phone or in-person meeting.

This application will take about 30 minutes to complete. You may want to write your responses in a separate document before submitting them here. Thank you for applying!
