Sponsors and supportive adults are encouraged to offer guidance in the selection process and use strategies that foster and support independent choice.
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.
For more information about requirements and the two-step application process, visit the Stateline Community Foundation website.
