Apply now Fohr Freshman Class
Over the last few years, the call for more diversity in the influencer space has gotten louder and louder, and at Fohr, we want to use our platform as a leader in the space to amplify that message for more diversity and help provide opportunities for underrepresented voices. Fohr Freshman Class is a pilot program that is meant to provide mentorship, access and networking opportunities to influencers who typically have been excluded by the industry.
Why we're doing it
We started Fohr because we wanted to even the playing field and create a platform that would give all influencers, regardless of who they knew or where they lived, a chance to work with the world’s best brands. With Fohr Freshman Class, we are doubling down and amplifying the call for diversity in the industry. We are aware of how societal barriers prevent many talented influencers from being discovered and we want to use our platform to change that.
Fohr Freshman Class is open to all influencers who remain underrepresented in the industry. We encourage influencers of all races, ethnicities, religions, ages, body types, and sexual orientations to apply to be part of our first Freshman Class.
What is Freshman Class?
Fohr Freshman Class is a lot of things: an educational retreat, a time to network with other influencers, a chance for up and coming influencers to get in front of our hundreds of brands, but our main hope is that it opens the door for the winners to gain access to opportunities and further their careers.
How can I apply?
Influencers will apply via a free application process. Any influencer on Fohr, regardless of size, is eligible to be admitted into Fohr Freshman Class. This is an inclusive program, giving equal opportunity to any influencer regardless of location, follower count, or vertical.
How It Works
You must be a registered on Fohr to apply. Applications from influencers who aren’t on Fohr will not be accepted. Sign up here.
Testimonials from your followers will be judged as well. After you apply, you’ll receive custom Instagram Stories to share with your followers about Fohr Freshman Class. We encourage you to share them with your audience. The more testimonials, the better!
Once applications close, a diverse panel comprised of individuals inside and outside of Fohr will select the Fohr Freshman Class based on application responses, testimonials, stats, and content.

Winners publicly announced
November 14 - 16
Members of Fohr’s inaugural Freshman Class will have an all-expense paid trip to New York in early November. Their itinerary is below:
Welcome Dinner & Drinks
Start the trip off on right with an intimate dinner with your fellow classmates, brands, and Fohr team members.
We want to put our Freshmen to the test and let them show off a bit. They will receive an assignment and will present on their brief during Campus Week both to the Fohr team and their peers.
Throughout the day, the Freshmen will have a chance to learn from Fohr team members and other top personalities in the influencer marketing industry.
Each Freshman will be paired with a Mentor, an influencer in their industry who can guide and inform. They will have 1-on-1 sessions with the goal of learning and inspiring.
On the second night, we’ll honor the Freshmen with a party including some of the best brands and influencers in the space. During the party, we’ll present each Freshman with a class jacket and honor them before the group.
Recap last night’s party in style—before you head on your way.
Where you'll stay
Our friends at Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown will provide you the chicest dorm rooms ever, and you’ll be bunking up with one of your fellow classmates for the trip in the lap of luxury. Be sure to thank them with a photo or two.
Housed in one of the city’s tallest residential towers and designed by renowned architect Robert A.M. Stern, Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown soars above a neighborhood that’s rewriting itself every day. Diverse, inspiring, current – this is Downtown New York, at the crossroads of Tribeca and the Financial District, and just a block from One World Trade Center.
Meet the mentors
At the end of this program, we want the Freshmen to leave inspired and more knowledgeable than when they arrived. We know change doesn’t come over 48 hours, so during the weeks and months following Campus Week, we will be having weekly calls to help our Freshmen negotiate deals, advise them on brand partnerships, and in general be a resource for them.
