Converge Fellows



Harrison High School


2018 - 2019


Converge Fellows is a one year intensive program for area high school students.

Each year Converge Fellowship will select six junior year students to engage in intensive programming intended to generate exposure to the life of the mind and action in the public square.

Students selected to the program will choose between two areas of interest (fellowship tracks): politics and social action or creative writing and the arts.

Each student will be charged with one capstone-like task: bring a bit of beauty to Colorado Springs. The students will be paired with a mentor (two students to one mentor) from one of Converge Lecture Series’ partner schools: University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, Colorado College, United States Air Force Academy, or Pikes Peak Community College.

At the end of the school year each student will present their project to a small board consisting of the following parties: each mentor participating in the project, two representatives from Harrison High School, two representatives from Converge Lecture Series, and one representative from foundation partners.

Each student that successfully completes their capstone project will be awarded an academic scholarship to the school of their choosing.
