The Seventh Generation Fund for Indigenous Peoples is excited to announce the Tradition Bearers for Bio-cultural Diversity Fellowship request for submissions.
Candidates for this fellowship are Native American / First Nations working in their communities in the United States or Canada. This fellowship strives to build an awardee's social network, individual capacity, strengthen their contributions to their field of endeavor, and provide direct support for a deeper inquiry into their culture and work. This is an opportunity for leaders in Indigenous communities to advance their aspirations and capacity, and an opportunity to re-invest these learnings back into their communities.
The deadline to apply is January 31, 2018. Applications may be submitted between now and the deadline. All applications will be reviewed for selection between February 1 - March 2, 2018. Fellowship awards will be publically announced by the Seventh Generation Fund on March 9, 2018.
Applicants must submit the application and include a 2-4 page personal statement outlining their experience in community-based work, how this work has advanced or continues to advance their communities, and how receiving this Fellowship would be beneficial in their work. Applications must accompany 2-3 letters of recommendation and photograph of the applicant.
