Seeking Applications for the Spring 2023 Cohort of the Dinah F. B. Cohen DREAM Fellowship Program

 

Dinah F.B. Cohen DREAM Fellowship Program

 

Application Deadline: January 31st, 2023 at 8 PM EDT

 

The NDMC, in partnership with the student-led organization, Disability Rights, Education, Activism and Mentoring (DREAM) at the National Center for College Students with Disabilities (NCCSD), created the Dinah F. B. Cohen DREAM Fellowship Program to provide college students and recent graduates with disabilities with professional skills and leadership opportunities. 


Applications for the spring cohort of the National Disability Mentoring Coalition (NDMC) Dinah F.B. Cohen DREAM Fellowship are open! Thanks to the generous support of Macy's, NDMC and Partners for Youth With Disabilities are able to expand this cohort from 10 to 15 Fellows.

Through this program, the selected fellows will:

Develop leadership and professional skills
Understand mentoring as a disability inclusion strategy; and
Expand their network to impact career development and access to opportunities.

To honor the life and legacy of Dinah F.B. Cohen, the NDMC actively seeks applications from young adults with disabilities to include those who represent multiply-marginalized groups. These groups that are adversely affected by the cumulative discrimination against and social exclusion of more than one minority population include, but are not limited to, youth of color and Jewish women with disabilities.

The selected Fellows will complete approximately 65 hours of a paid fellowship from March through June of 2023. On average, Fellows will complete 5-6 hours/week over a 12 week period.

Application deadline: January 31, 2023 at 8PM ET.
