The Carole & Jim Young Fellows

Ideas, News No Comments

Thanks to the generous support of a TEDxSMU donor, we’re thrilled to announce the creation of the Carole & Jim Young Fellows program to bring SMU students to TEDxSMU.

The Carole & Jim Young Fellows represent the most interesting SMU students. This fall, we will open applications for students from each of the seven schools at SMU. Two students per school will be selected as Young Fellows. These students will participate as TEDxKids @SMU Hosts Supervisors and have the ability to audition as a TEDxSMU Presenter. All Fellows will be given the opportunity to attend TEDxSMU.  The Young Fellows will also be invited to participate in TEDxSMU programming throughout the remainder of the 2011-2012 academic year.

Starting on August 30, SMU students may apply for the Fellowship through www.TEDxSMU.org. Applications will be open through September 30, and the inaugural class of Fellows announced on October 7.

Young Fellows will participate during the day at TEDxKids @SMU on Friday, December 2. Young Fellows receive a complimentary ticket to attend TEDxSMU on Saturday, December 3.

As part of our commitment to the students in the Dallas area, we offer TEDxKids free of charge. Students are expected to complete a service learning project. All TEDxKids-coordinated service projects will take place on Monday, January 16, 2012 (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day), and the Young Fellows are invited and encouraged to participate in this day as well.

The link to apply for a Young Fellowship will be active on www.TEDxSMU.org starting on August 30.
