We consider group dynamics thoughtfully and full participation is very important for maintaining the fabric of the cohort. Past fellows have expressed that the experience is much more meaningful when everyone is present. Please be thoughtful about the investment of personal time expected in deciding to apply. We understand and make space for absences relating to medical and other pressing emergencies.
