What is the difference between applying as a Fellow vs. Regional President?
Being a Regional President (RP) is a greater time commitment (Fellows commit 3-4 hours a week, RP's commit 5+ hours a week), RPs receive one of three Muldoon-Mosaic Bursaries for $10,000 ($5,000 a year), RPs are responsible for Campus Dialogues and Team Leadership (learn more about those responsibilities here), and RPs have to include a CV/resume in their application in addition to their transcript and application form. Still unsure which one to apply for? Email Program Manager Alexis at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will help you figure it out!
Can I apply to be a fellow and/or regional president as a mature student?
Yes! Mature students are eligible to apply to the UofMosaic fellowship program.
Can I apply to be a fellow and/or regional president as a part-time student?
Yes! Part time students are eligible to apply to the UofMosaic fellowship program.
I’m a fourth-year student and won’t be registered at a university/college in the second year of the program. Can I still apply?
Yes! Students are required to be registered as a student at a university and college for at least one year of the fellowship’s two year term. You are absolutely eligible to apply.
I live in one province, but go to school in another. Which geographic team should I apply for?
If you are between two provinces (for example: you attend school in British Columbia and live their during the school year, but your home is based in Nova Scotia), please choose the province you are physically in most frequently for the next two years. This is so you can attend team events based in that region!
