The Rare Creative Fellowship is a global program for emerging creative talent that offers hands-on experience and exposure across Google’s various in-house creative teams.
The creative industry's insistence on elite degrees, portfolios and connections as markers of worth creates a talent loop that is systemically inaccessible. A more ambitious, more inclusive industry is dependent on looking beyond those standard processes. That is why we’re looking outside typical networks to find exceptional talent to join us.
The Rare Creative Fellowship places emerging talent on dedicated teams, gaining exposure and hands-on experience across Google’s various in-house creative departments. In tandem with this experience, participants are also invited to key Google events and inspiring talks to enrich their experience.
This program ushers in a new, diverse generation of creative talent and benefits the industry at large by bringing in fresh, innovative perspectives.

What is the Creative Fellowship?
The Creative Fellowship is a global program for emerging creative talent that offers ongoing mentorship, helpful networking opportunities and hands-on experience across Google’s various in-house creative teams.
What does the program entail?
Along with meaningful mentorship and networking opportunities, each participant will have a bespoke experience dependent upon their unique creative skillset and creative team.
Who should apply?
The program is for emerging creative thinkers (0 - 3 years of creative experience) who have a passion for making things and telling stories. We’re looking for individuals excited to bring their voice and craft to Google’s creative teams. Each creative team at Google is looking for something different, so we encourage creatives to apply with work that best captures their craft.
What kind of projects will I be working on?
The Creative Fellowship experience differs between participants. Each Fellow will be placed on a Google creative team and work on real projects under that team’s guidance.
