Elle will talk about whether the EV Fellowship is right for you, the best way to approach the current application (Deadline: August 12th, 2013), what the judging panel is looking for, the application process, and what to expect if you are chosen. A Q&A session will follow. Let’s start a new tradition by having a San Diego presence in this coveted fellowship every year!
