Over the course of five months, our fellows explore a variety of career paths, learn about resources available to them, and strengthen their personal and professional networks as they develop strategic plans for plausible business ideas as well as their own futures. A monthly stipend is provided to all fellows, and all program-related expenses are covered, so fellows do not need to use the GI Bill or other military benefits to participate.
