The Bush Fellowship provides up to $100,000 over 12 to 24 months.
This resource sets them up to pursue education and learning experiences.
And those experiences help them develop the skills and relationships that may foster large-scale change in their communities and region.
Interesting to note, this is one of the largest fellowships of its kind in the country.
On today’s show we’ll be speaking with some of this year’s Indigenous fellows.
From tribal sovereignty to health and education, these fellows are working to imagine new systems and transform existing ones.
