Program Timeline and Commitment

Fellows are expected to attend all North Star events and Saturday sessions, complete assigned readings and cooperate with fellows on their respective co-op final presentations and initiatives. Fellows should anticipate that this is an 85-100 hour commitment of their time.

Fellows are provided a small stipend to support their participation in the fellowship. The amount of $500.00 is disbursed in two payments at the beginning and end of the fellowship.
