2017 Walking College Fellowship Application
DEADLINE EXTENDED UNTIL MARCH 1 at 12 NOON EASTERN

Instructions and advice for applicants:

• Please answer all of the following questions.
• You are not expected to be an expert in walkable community design or policies. Our goal is to select a diverse class of advocates who are poised to take their local work to the next level and, for whom, the Walking College will be a critical catalyst.
• We suggest you complete this application in two phases. First, download this Word version of the application form, http://bit.ly/2kKqSXv, to your computer and take your time to develop answers to all of the questions. When you are satisfied with your answers, copy and paste them into the response fields on the application page and click "Submit."
• We are looking for concise answers to all of the questions, and so the response fields on the application page will accept a maximum of 600 characters (about 100 words). However, you may send additional documents with your application, if you wish (see final question).
• A “Walking College Orientation Webinar” was broadcast on Tuesday, February 14th, to provide information about the Walking College and the application process – visit http://bit.ly/2kHy5nA to watch the recording
