For our Class of 2019, we’ll match fellows to meaningful, paid summer jobs at Rocket LabSpireKitty Hawk, the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, and NASA‘s Goddard Space Flight Center! <microphone drop!>

Aerospace isn’t just for engineers, pilots, and astronauts. Our Fellowship–like our industry as a whole–needs people from those disciplines and many more. That’s why our Fellowship offers paid, purpose-driven jobs in engineering, science, business, policy, journalism, and education. All of our jobs pay a living wage, so that they are truly open to talented individuals from any socioeconomic background.

Our first classes have shown that there is no one path to becoming a Brooke Owens Fellow. Our inspiring alumnae come from a staggeringly broad range of family histories, and nearly as large a range of college majors and concentrations.

Our Class of 2018 has developed a new program called “Ask a Brookie” designed to help guide and mentor the generation that comes after them, and we couldn’t be prouder! We’ll pass the virtual microphone off the them to explain.

As a growing cohort of accomplished young professionals, it’s our goal to serve and improve our community. If you’re a K-12 or college student with questions about space, aviation, internships, college, or a whole host of related topics, please feel free to reach out to us. Whether you are looking for a one-time answer or a mentor to help you navigate the twists and turns of the aerospace world, chances are we’ve been in your shoes and asked the same questions, too. 

Based on their inquiries, any student can be matched with a Fellow in their region, whom they can consult for short- or long-term guidance. Parents, teachers, and professionals are encouraged to direct their grade school and college-age students to the Ask a Brookie website for scholarship, internship, and career support.

We come from a wide variety of backgrounds and are located at schools and companies around the country. When you submit a question or request for mentorship, you’ll be matched with a Fellow who is best equipped to help. We encourage you to dream big and Ask A Brookie!

See the full description on Handshake and apply for it here: 

Human Resources Leadership Summit

Are you someone who brings out the best in the people around you? Do you love using data to find and tackle complex problems? If so, we want to bring you in for an amazing experience.

We want top-performing sophomores, with an interest in meaningful work, to join our HR Leadership Summit. The Summit is a 3.5-day, all-expenses paid experience, where we offer a look into one of the world’s leading companies for leadership development.

A career in Human Resources with us is about much more than just pushing paper and enforcing policies. We are partners with senior leadership, guiding the strategy of different organizations, making sure our organization is fully inclusive and supportive of all of our people, and providing personal mentorship to others.

If you like the thought of having a say, of influencing others, making sure we are diverse and inclusive to everyone, ultimately helping our people perform at their peak, you definitely should consider this Leadership Summit.

This what the program looks like:

We would fly to our World Headquarters in downtown Cincinnati for a 3.5 day experience, put you up in a boutique hotel within walking distance of our offices, and treat you to amazing meals at some of the best, new restaurants in Cincinnati.

Over the course of the summit, you will meet with high-level HR leaders who will share their insights into a variety of areas, including:

  • Leadership Development
  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Talent and Capability
  • Organization Design
  • Culture & Change Management
  • Employee Engagement

While you’re here, we’ll show you how Human Resources really works in a large, multinational company. We will ask that you share your ideas through an interactive business case with your summit peers. We’ll give you all the information you need so you can do the research and present your case recommendations. We’re looking for someone to wow us with your unique perspective and ideas.

Finally, we’ll hold a panel interview with you that could potentially lead to an internship offer for the following summer (2020). Our full-time HR management internships are 12-weeks long and pay very well. If would like meaningful work, in a dynamic and fast-paced environment, where you are expected to deliver on key business deliverables, this would be a phenomenal internship for you.


We believe this is ideal for you if:

  • You’re an academically high-achieving sophomore (graduating in 2021) working towards a BA, BS, BBS degree in HR, or related field of study (communication, psychology, etc.)
  • You have leadership experience in your degree program or extra-curricular organizations
  • You thrive in situations where you need little direction to have an impact on decision-making

If you’re a really good fit, you will be:

  • Passionate about improving people and team performance
  • Able to use data analysis to tell stories and drive decisions
  • Able to take complex social problems to help our businesses win in their respective markets

Just so you know:

  • You will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, protected veteran status, disability status, age, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, marital status, citizenship, HIV/AIDS status or any other legally protected factor
  • No immigration sponsorship is available for this position
  • Procter & Gamble participates in e-verify as required by law
  • Qualified individuals will not be disadvantaged based on being unemployed
