Application deadline January 26, 2018.
If you think in terms of a year, plant a seed; if in terms of ten years, plant trees; if in terms of 100 years, teach the people.
Thanks to Chapter Member Jason Tsai for passing this on.
Jason writes: Application deadline has been extended to this Friday! I count my fellowship time as one of the most significant formative experiences thus far in my life. Not to mention the lifelong friends and skills I gained along the way. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to chat with you!
