53.2% of fellows are female in the United States. This is 1.8 percentage points higher than last year. Additionally, the percentage of female fellows has increased by 5.5 percentage points since 2010. That means there are a total of 8,273 female fellows in the U.S. and 7,278 male fellows in the United States. Note that Zippia's estimate accounts only for the 15,551 people with the specific job title of fellow and doesn't include grouping similar job titles, or people with potentially similar credentialing.
