Focus Forward Fellowship

The Focus Forward Fellowship is a new program designed to build skills, leadership and a sense of community among female student veterans and military-connected women. Candidates for the program are women enrolled in a four-year institution who will be entering their sophomore or junior year in Fall 2016.

Through the Focus Forward Fellowship, students are

  • building a community of support with peers, mentors and faculty;
  • recognizing barriers to personal effectiveness;
  • identifying strategies and resources to increase their connections and success on campus;
  • gaining confidence in problem solving; and
  • developing skills to help foster their academic and career goals.

The weekend program was held Aug. 11-14 in Indianapolis, Ind. Additional web-based activities are scheduled throughout the 2016-2017 academic year. You can learn more about the inaugural class here. To join the conversation, follow MFRI on Twitter at @MFRIPurdue and use #FWDFellows.
