Don’t Forget! Dalai Lama Fellows Applications Due

February 9, 2015

The Bonner Center for Service and Learning is accepting applications for Dalai Lama Fellows through Friday, February 13. Fellows can receive a project grant of up to $10,000.

Dalai Lama Fellows is a yearlong program that seeks to promote principled leadership and personal accountability. Dalai Lama Fellows design, create, and launch ambitious Compassion-in-Action projects that address one or more of the four global challenges identified by the 14th Dalai Lama: encouraging cross-cultural and interfaith understanding and cooperation, diminishing violence, alleviating poverty, and protecting the environment.

A main requirement of Dalai Lama Fellows is to integrate their fellowship work meaningfully into the life of their respective college or university. Returning to Oberlin’s campus is a vital part of that requirement.

Dalai Lama Fellows is open to all Oberlin College students. For an application, email your request to bcsl@oberlin.edu. For questions, contact Fellowships Advisor Nick Petzak at nick.petzak@oberlin.edu or 440-775-8140.
