Since 2016, MINN’s IDEA Fellowship Program has continued to grow and expand. The fellowship program is more than sharing opportunities and voice with MINN fellows, it is also a chance for our MINN community to expand our understanding of the world by learning from those who are bridges between life in Minnesota and the communities where international work has been or is being done. Stay tuned for the 2018 IDEA Fellowship applications (June 2018). In the meantime, we invite you to learn more about our inspiring 2017 MINN Fellow, Diana Chaman.
