July Featured Project: Dalai Lama Fellows

Dalai Lama Fellows awards highly competitive, year long Fellowships with a project grant of up to $6,000 to students at select universities and colleges worldwide. Over the course of the year, Fellows are immersed in a reflective leadership curriculum, where they explore universal human values including contemplation, compassion, emotional resilience, discernment and courage.

In July, they host their annual Ethical Leadership Assembly, which builds skills and plants the seeds of life-long commitment to social innovation and ethical, compassionate leadership based on universal values. Learn more about Dalai Lama Fellows on their website, Facebook, and Twitter.
