2014 Community Leadership Fellowship

What would you do to make the world a better place?

Lauren Pochereva, BA’09, DipSci’12, and Erik Delaquis, MA’13, have a few creative ideas, thanks to the PFF Fellowship they will have the opportunity to put them into practice.

PFF Community Leadership Fellowship

Established in 2011, the PFF Community Leadership Program is a new fellowship program that offers extraordinary opportunities for McGill students to bring sustainable and positive social change to communities around the world. The program is open to graduating undergraduate and master’s students from across the university, who must also be permanent Canadian residents. The funding helps to support a community‐based project of their own design, based anywhere in the world and in any field. Successful applicants receive up to $20,000 for an 8‐ month project or up to $30,000 for a 12‐month project.

This highly prestigious fellowship is designed to attract only those applicants who have demonstrated strong histories of community service and the ability to work within communities to achieve social change. Successful applicants will be those students who have set themselves apart from their colleagues through their intellectual vigour and their social vision and commitment. They will be well‐ rounded individuals who show remarkable promise for becoming global leaders in their fields and for making a positive difference in the world.

2014 Application deadline: Monday, February 3rd, 2014, 12:00pm (EST)
