A Call to Service
Our Fellows, driven by a desire to make a meaningful contribution towards a more harmonious, peaceful, and sustainable world, envision an original “compassion-in-action” project and apply online when the Dalai Lama Fellows Campus Champion puts out an open call for proposals in the Fall.
The Ethical Leadership Assembly
Every June, Fellows convene for a weeklong assembly where distinguished faculty lead curriculum modules to prepare them for the challenging work ahead and where lasting bonds are formed with other Fellows, staff, and Elder experts.
Heart, Head, and Hands
During the year, Fellows participate in a unique, contemplative leadership curriculum and engage with Program Directors, each other, and subject matter experts to support and augment their work in the field and push their development as compassionate, ethical leaders.
At the end of the Fellowship year, Fellow return to the Ethical Leadership Assembly to share their work-to-date and lessons learned with the broader Dalai Lama Fellows community, including current and past Fellows, staff, and stakeholders.
A Lifelong Commitment
The Fellowship Year is not a discrete, one-time experience. Rather we hope it acts as launchpad from which our Fellows emerge even more deeply committed to global service and from which collaborative initiatives between Fellows of all cohorts spring up to continue impacting The Four Global Challenges.
