International Fellowship Seeking Applications

Kamehameha Schools News Release

Become a part of a fellowship program designed to develop emerging leaders in Hawaii to become significant community contributors in natural, cultural and land stewardship. Applications for Kamehameha Schools’ First Nations’ Futures Program (FNFP) are available now through June 15.

FNFP is an international collaboration between Kamehameha Schools, Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu of New Zealand, Stanford University and the University of Hawaii at Manoa. The objective of the program is to bridge western academic and corporate philosophies with traditional First Nations’ philosophies to develop successful leaders.

A one-year commitment is required, which involves six to 10 weeks of programming including a three-day orientation, a two-week leadership development institute at Stanford University, an `oiwi leadership `aha (gathering) and a research project in Hawaii. The fellowship concludes with a final presentation to the incoming fellows at the 2013 First Nations’ Futures Institute.

Molokai is currently represented by a fellow in this year’s cohort, Shanna Willing, who also serves the community as financial director at Molokai Community Service Council.

For program information, including eligibility requirements and scheduling, interested applicants should visit fnfp.org, e-mail fellowship@ksbe.edu or call 808-541-5346. Applications can be downloaded, from April 11th-June 15th at www.ksbe.edu/admissions or by calling 1-800-842-4682 ext. 8800.
