Better Selves Fellowship Application

Thank you for your interest in the Better Selves Fellowship at Knoll Farm. Please fill this out as completely and thoughtfully as possible. We aim to keep it simple, not a lot of hoops to jump through. Having a need, and a clear goal, are the most important things. We will be accepting applications until April 1, and hoping to notify all applicants of our decisions by April 24.

We expect with all our hearts and minds to offer the Better Selves Fellowships this summer because community leaders will need more than ever before to be in healthy, natural places. We are fully prepared to ensure that Knoll Farm is as it has always been -a healthy, nurturing place for all.  We will take all necessary precautions to ensure this. Fellowships  include cost of travel.  Of course, we will notify all fellows as early as possible if it is no longer advisable to convene the fellowships this summer. Therefore, there is no risk in applying. Please apply and be hopeful about our collective future.

We recommend cutting and pasting your answers from a document so that nothing can be lost in submission. When submitted successfully, the form will clear and a box confirming that your form has been submitted will appear at the top and bottom of the page. If you have any trouble with this form, please contact us
