For Your Consideration and Application!

This past year has been meaningful and significant in many ways for me personally - but in large part I have grown, developed, learned, and been shaped as a Carl Wilkens Fellow through Genocide Intervention Network. I could enumerate numerous ways that I have grown through many opportunities opened up to me through this venue!

I want to encourage any persons interested in working toward eupan to consider their own opportunity to become a Carl Wilkens Fellow for 2011!

I wish I would have been more organized to have posted this information for your awareness earlier. But, alas, - it is not too late to apply!

Here is what you need to know:

The 2011 Fellowship application is live on Genocide Intervention Network’s website yesterday and will be due by Friday, November 5th. You may access the application

About the Fellowship

Launched in 2009, the Carl Wilkens Fellowship Program seeks to bridge the gap between thought and action in the anti-genocide movement. The Fellowship is selective, 12-month leadership development program that provides a diverse set of emerging citizen leaders with the tools and training to build sustained political will to end genocide.

In its first two years, the Carl Wilkens Fellowship has worked with thirty-eight (38) individuals from communities across the country and from a diversity of backgrounds - from retired corporate lawyers, to high school teachers and college professors, to computer programmers and communications specialists.

Through the Fellowship, each one of these individuals has committed to growing as a leader and taken it upon themselves to acquire the tools and resources to build sustained political will within their communities for the prevention and cessation of genocide.
