Fellowships With the Atlanta BeltLine – A One-of-a-Kind Opportunity

There’s no doubt that the Atlanta BeltLine is part of an exciting sea-change in Atlanta’s growing infrastructure, and few people are more excited to see the project progress than those of us who work for Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. We are passionate about the work we do, and we look for those who are equally passionate to fill our fellowship positions.

A fellowship with Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. is a chance to work hands-on with one of the most transformative projects in Atlanta’s history. Each year, we hire a small but extremely talented group of graduate students to work as fellows in each department. These students are stand-out academics that demonstrate a knowledge and understanding of the full Atlanta BeltLine program. Our fellows aren’t just paper-pushers; they are out in the field with our staff tackling complex projects.

“[The fellowship] helped me gain a better perspective on the challenges in development of affordable workforce housing,” said Sasan Nemat, ABI’s current Housing Policy and Development Fellow. Sasan is pursuing his Juris Doctorate from Georgia State.

Tyler Martin is presently working as our Transportation Fellow. His work has included researching and developing cost estimates for streetscape improvements, collecting data and creating a framework for the 50+ proposed streetscape projects to be completed around the Atlanta BeltLine.

“What this project has really given me is an understanding of road design and costs, which I think any transportation student would appreciate,” said Tyler.

Rhonda White, who is pursuing her Master of Professional Writing degree at Kennesaw, had this to say about her year-long Communications Fellowship:

“The work I’ve been able to do is diverse. I know I’ve become a stronger communicator that’s now equipped with the skills to help strengthen the work and image of any organization. Experience doesn’t get better than this!”
