Students are now able to submit applications for the 2012 Fellows Class. Fellows enter an intensive 2-year program that includes bi-weekly career workshops, a $2500 professional development grant, access to two summer internships at prestigious companies, and work one on one with a mentor for a total of 800 hours over two years. While networking with leading industry professionals, Fellows also develop relationships with highly accomplished community and business leaders.

Eligible fellows may also receive up to $2,500 in opportunity grants to be used toward education expenses.
