Call for proposals 2022-23: CosmoTeenz Fellows (15-21 year olds), Coordinated Management of Meaning Institute, Phoenix, AZ. Deadline:15 April 2022.
The CMM Institute is offering Fellowships for 7-10 teens or young adults from different countries to work together to develop products, projects, and activities as part of the Institute’s CosmoTeenz program for 2022/2023. The goal is to enrich young peoples’ lives, create improved futures for the planet, and to help make better social worlds wherever we are at, whether school, work, or socially—any place where people meet, interact, and communicate. This includes communicating about difficult issues, such as exclusion, diversity, differences, mental health, sexual orientation, grief, and more. It means helping us to talk, live, and work well together, despite our differences.
Fellows will work together as a group for the duration of their Fellowship using Zoom and other online platforms to stay in touch and to work across time zone differences. They will be in mentoring relationships with members of the CMM Institute throughout the year, working on developing their final product(s). In conversation with CMM mentors, the group of Fellows will decide how often they will meet and how best to structure their meetings and work together. There will be a US $500 personal grant for each Fellow, as well as up to $15,000 USD (in consultation with the CMM Institute) for the group to put towards whatever they develop from June 2022 to June 2023.
