The Experience Fellowship acknowledges the right opportunity at the right time can have a profound impact.
The Fellowship provides up to $2,500 to empower youth, 11-19 years of age, to follow their passions and build their skills through an identified opportunity or program offering a meaningful growth experience.
Eligible fellowship activities may be education or career-focused programs, civic or leadership opportunities, mission or volunteer activities, or artistic and creative endeavors. The Fellowship committee does prioritize requests that support post-secondary exploration and decision-making.
Programs suitable for Fellowship awards build upon readily available courses and programs and move fellows beyond their current capabilities to achieve the following objectives:
• Explore or strengthen a self-declared area of interest
• Encourage curiosity and healthy risk-taking
• Increase engagement with positive adults
• Stretch capabilities and build skills
Applicants must be actively engaged with a mentor or supportive adult. Priority may be given to applicants who may not be able to pursue programs without Fellowship support.
