The DxE Fellows Program is intended to encourage people of outstanding commitment to pursue animal rights activism to a great degree. Fellows often work 60-70 hours per week on DxE projects. A Fellowship is an investment in an individual activist's originality, insight, and potential.
Fellows are not required to produce "deliverables" (projects or reports). The flexibility of the fellowship allows the activist to apply their skills and talents to where they are most needed, to initiate new projects that have not yet been imagined, and to respond to opportunities as they arise.
Fellows are chosen after consideration of activism they have accomplished as volunteer organizers. Work by past recipients includes: using campaign-related media and outreach to dramatically grow a core chapter; executing and managing major investigative projects, organizing protests of major events; and creating an activist database for better metrics of activist engagement. Upon consideration of potential fellows' activism, Friends of DxE selects a limited number of fellowship recipients who will create the highest overall impact for the network.
After fellowship applications are submitted, Friends of DxE will send those applications to the Steering Committee or a similarly situated body for recommendations on which fellows to approve.
