LEADERSHIP INITIATIVE

Fellowship Program

A year-long student partnership to reevaluate societal views of aging — from challenging negative stereotypes to combating ageism — through convenings, partnerships, and events focused on a new way of approaching aging.

Make a real impact

  • Help to reduce social isolation among older adults
  • Create an inclusive and welcoming space where older adults can thrive
  • Inspire and enhance wellness, creativity, tech exploration, financial security, curiosity, and imagination
  • Disrupt negative stereotypes about aging
From my experience, fellowships are great ways to diversify the academic experience and GenSpace is stronger because of our fellowship opportunities. Our Leadership Initiative Fellows bring their academic knowledge and expertise and we pair it with the mission and vision of Wallis Annenberg GenSpace to change the outdated stereotypes about older adults. I'm looking forward to watching the fellowship continue to bring in exemplary students and celebrate aging across programs and partnerships!
