"They say that everyone experiences a little (or a lot) of anxiety when they are preparing to take the first big step into the real world, doing what they know to be meaningful work: anthropologists are charged with the task of understanding and representing cultures that otherwise have little voice; leaders are faced with the moment they take on the responsibility of others; and activists become anxious to lead social change by inspiring others. My name is Abby and I am all of those things. And I am, in fact, nervous."

Each year, the Centennial Center for Leadership offers financial support to innovative student leaders in the form of fellowships. With awards for the Centennial Fellowship for up to $5000, the Entrepreneurship Fellowship for up to $3,000 (new in 2012) and the Cohen Fellowship for up to $1500, the Center invites proposals from current HWS students who can craft thoughtful projects that allow them to develop their leadership identity and engage in practical experiences with significant implications. Given the nature of funds, project proposals should be substantial, focused, thoughtfully developed, and illustrate an intention for leading lives of consequence. Awards are available for the summer or fall 2012.
