APPLES Service-Learning is accepting applications for the Bryan Social Innovation Fellowships. The Robert E. Bryan Social Innovation Fellowship is designed for aspiring social change-makers who are interested in providing a significant contribution locally, nationally or internationally through the creation of an entrepreneurial project that addresses a community issue or need.

Fellows receive enrollment in a public policy course, up to $1,500 to help launch their idea, support from APPLES students and staff and leadership training and personal development. A maximum of five fellowships are awarded each fall for the following calendar year. Upon completion of the fellowship year, teams can reapply for a second year of funding of as much as $1,000.

The fellowship is named in honor of alumnus Robert Emmet Bryan (1904-1975), a native of Newton Grove, N.C., who was a strong supporter of public service.

Apply online through the CCPS Application and Nomination Portal.
