Unite

A hand-selected cohort of 10 Scholars will regularly convene to share experiences in a collaborative, think tank like environment, allowing Fellows to develop goals and accountability partnerships.

Reimagine

Through the Social Entrepreneurship Project, each Fellow will address the obstacles that are holding Mississippi back from progressing forward and confront the issue in a ground-breaking approach, fostering impactful social innovation that can lead to creating the future they envision for Mississippi, their community, and themselves.

Broaden

Delta State University’s graduate school will provide our Fellows with new skills and knowledge that will improve their ability to successfully reimagine Mississippi and better position themselves to be surrounded with experts in their particular field.

Connect

Fellows will be paired with a change-maker mentor, who is an expert in a related field, that will assist the Fellow with their Social Entrepreneurship project and personal development. Fellows will also be provided exceptional opportunities to further engage in local communities.

 

Application will open on December 1, 2016 to student innovators, leaders, and entrepreneurs who have completed their two year commitment to Teach For America. Applications close March 1, 2017.
