What would YOU do to change the world?

Monday, Oct. 22nd 2012 at 5-7pm

Murray-Dodge 21, Princeton, New Jersey

Find out how you can be a Dalai Lama Fellow! Applications are due Nov. 2nd!

Come listen to Marlene Morgan, a Princeton senior, share her experiences as a Dalai Lama Fellow. Marlene's project is an extension of research she performed in 2011, while working for the Black Mesa Water Coalition, a local citizen-sector organization focusing on employment alternatives to coal mining – a dominant yet unsustainable and environmentally damaging form of economic security on Navajo Nation. Marlene explored ways to create a cast-off wool industry on Navajo Nation as an economically viable alternative to coal mining.


We are looking for globally minded citizens who passionately want to build a more harmonious, peaceful, and sustainable world. More than ever, our individual ability to thrive – indeed survive – is interwoven with the destinies of others. As a Fellow, you:

  • Design and launch a project to address a significant challenge in your community;
  • Travel 2x to the Ethical Leadership Assembly (ELA) near San Francisco to connect with Fellows from around the world and to deepen your leadership capacity;
  • Receive up to $10,000 in funding for your project and travel to the ELA; and,
  • Participate in a distinctive, year-long curriculum with ongoing, personalized support from staff and seasoned professionals from the private and social sectors.
