Echoing Green Fellowship: Opportunities and Challenges for African American Social Entrepreneurs

Echoing Green is about to start accepting applications for the 2012 Echoing Green Fellowship - Monday, December 5th!

The nonprofit has invested a lot of energy into preparing prospective applicants for the application process. Staff recently ran a webinar that provided participants with detailed information about the fellowship and the application process. I really liked that viewers could submit questions for a Q&A held at the end of the webinar.

Echoing Green followed this up with a series of webinars geared towards specific audiences. I participated in all of these webinars "just for fun" - enjoyed this one the most! It features Fellow Anthony Jewett of Bardoli Global Initiative. Enjoy!

An additional note from Echoing Green: If you are interested in the Black Male Achievement (BMA) Fellowship – a new, parallel fellowship managed by Echoing Green that will invest in 8 individuals (of any ethnic or gender background) with passion and an innovative approach to supporting black men and boys in the United States, check out the full details here.

Here are the links for the recordings of the other Echoing Green webinars. The beginning of each webinar is essentially the same - the real value in watching the additional webinars are the remarks given by Echoing Green Fellows.
