Fellows are students who’ve completed the 30 series and typically have implemented their own projects (sometimes multiple times!). They teach the research sections and tech labs while designing new ones.
Fellows are responsible for recruitment, aspects of fundraising, and act as peer mentors for current 30 series students. The fellows are self managing and are understood to be the true governing body of the Everett Program.
They are Everett’s owners, operators, and key stake holders.
