Student Hours

Are you in the process of applying for the Pathy Fellowship but are struggling with certain components of the application form? Maybe you are struggling with how to best describe the passion for your initiative. Perhaps you are finding it difficult to showcase your strengths while discussing some personal challenges that you may face while implementing your project.  Or maybe you are finding it difficult to best describe the community that you would like to implement your project in. If you need help with any of these or are just looking for words of encouragement, don’t be scared to ask for support! You are encouraged to book a one-on-one session with a Pathy Fellowship Program Assistant for support.  Multiple one-on-one meetings can be booked on various dates from September through November.
