No, you are not required to have served time in a youth facility, jail or prison. However, the goal of this fellowship is to develop the skills of individuals with justice involvement and build on past experiences to drive transformative change in the justice system. Some level of justice involvement is required, whether this includes you, a family member or dear loved one.

No, you must complete and submit the online application form all at once. However, you can view the entire application and prepare the required materials before submitting. We recommend that you write your responses on another platform and then copy/paste into the form for submission.

We encourage applicants with various strengths to apply. We want to hear from you regardless of your writing abilities and we can find other ways to get to know you! The application includes an opportunity to supplement your written responses with media links. This could be an article or video that highlights your community involvement, or it could be something you create specifically for the application (ex: a video introduction of yourself).

If you require additional accommodations, please contact us by email or phone, listed below.

We would prefer a professional, wise elder, or academic reference that is not a friend or family member. Examples could include elders, teachers, mentors, volunteer supervisors, managers, or employers. References may be contacted by the NGF team and should be prepared to speak about your candidacy.

NGF will facilitate three 2-day sessions on March 27th-28th, April 24th-25th, and June 5th-6th, 2023. Two sessions are in-person and one through Zoom. As a COVID-19 precaution, NGF will follow all county, state, and organizational precautions regarding COVID-19. We will do our best to support fellows with any technology-related needs.

A maximum of 15 applicants will be selected.
