METRO Fellowship in New York City‏. Fellowship Applications due: May 13, 2016

Individual applicants should focus their project proposals within one or more designated areas of inquiry, but applicants are also welcome to submit proposals that fall outside these areas. We encourage all applicants to take a close look at the reverse pitches that METRO member organizations provided. While we are excited to hear any and all ideas in your proposals, we are paying closest attention to proposals that solve real-world challenges or problems of practice as they have been defined by our members. In addition, we are seeking proposals that can solve cross-organizational challenges, so referencing more than one reverse pitch will certainly capture our attention.
