Imagine you had the opportunity to go on a spontaneous “journey” to Iran, Armenia, Syria, Bangladesh or Poland and gain unique insights into each country’s culture and tradition — in just one evening.

Thank you to all of our applicants. The application process is now closed.
As the year comes to a close, we’re happy to look back on all the hard work our Fellows have accomplished over the year and recognize their hard work, as well as all the support our community has given to help Melton Fellows reach their goals.
