Applications are once again open for the William C. Friday Fellowship for Human Relations
. As you may know, the fellowship honors the legacy of longtime UNC System President Bill Friday, who charged the first class of fellows with embracing personal growth and learning in the service of all North Carolinians.
Now entering its 25th year as a program of Wildacres Leadership Initiative (WLI), this tuition-free statewide fellowship is eager to welcome a class of adult fellows who will explore how curiosity, courage, creativity, and connection yield leadership practices capable of transforming North Carolinians and their communities.
I welcome you to nominate, direct applicants, or spread the word
as you see fit (via Twitter, Instagram, Facebook) to leaders in every part of our state while the Friday Fellowship launches this new application season.
Applications and nominations are due
by (or postmarked no later than) 5:00 pm EST on Friday, January 17, 2020.
