Pathy Fellowships

Are you up for the challenge?  

One year.  One project.  Unleash your potential.

The Pathy Fellowship provides community-focused experiential learning opportunities for graduating students to become active and effective change-makers, bringing new ideas and working closely with communities to foster sustainable and positive social change in Canada and around the world.

The year-long fellowship is for graduating students who have:

  • demonstrated the capacity and potential to develop as effective change-agents;
  • meaningful connection with a community of their choosing locally, nationally or internationally; and,
  • either have an innovative idea of how this community could be strengthened or developed OR a connection with a positive sustainable community development initiative in any field already underway within this community that they would like to build upon.

Successful candidates will receive up to $40,000 in funding.
