The call for applications is now closed.

About the Emerging Scholars Fellowship

Select students will receive $1,000 to complete projects related to the increase of help-seeking and accessibility of mental health services among any of the following unique student populations: first-generation students, Greek life members, or student athletes.

Undergraduate or graduate students from any major may apply, and we welcome proposals that focus on research, creative expression, technology, or other modes.

During the six-month fellowship, scholars will complete their projects, build a peer network, connect professionally with a national mentor, and gain experience distributing their content to the public. Active Minds will select six fellowship recipients who will receive $1,000 stipends and an additional $250 in reimbursement for project expenses.
