FELLOWSHIP INFORMATIONAL WEBINARS
As part of our ongoing effort to increase the pool of talent and big ideas we see each year, we hosted three webinars specifically designed for applicants from communities that have been underrepresented amongst our applicants in recent years (women, African-Americans, and U.S.-based Latinos). During these webinars, past Fellows from these communities answered questions from applicants and gave advice on how to put your best foot forward.
