The Gordon Foundation's Jane Glassco Northern Fellowship
The Jane Glassco Northern Fellowship is aimed at young northerners, especially Aboriginal northerners, aged 25 to 35, who want to build a strong North that benefits northerners. It is for those who are looking for additional support, networks and guidance from mentors and peers across the North as they deepen their understanding of important issues facing their region, and develop policy ideas to help address them.
Ten northerners will be selected to gather together three times throughout the 18-month Fellowship for learning and networking opportunities. Each Fellow will work on an individual project, delivered in the format of their choice, on a policy issue of their choice. Together, Fellows will determine a group project to present at the culmination of the Fellowship.
