The Universitas Fellows Program is the premier program of the Foundation offered to provide holistic formation for future principled leaders in all sectors of society. It is akin to a management-training program where future officers and managers of the Foundation are formed.
Applicants to the Fellows program undergo all the key APPs (Activities, Projects & Programs) of the Foundation, depending on their qualification level, and are provided with professional mentors. They have to accomplish work, and acquire knowledge and skills, related to the three key principles of Universitas, namely, Competence, solid Character, and well-formed Conscience. Concretely, these are measured through the following: Capacity Building, Research & Communication, and Compassion (Social Welfare & Outreach).
Being inducted as a Fellow manifests that the individual is equipped with the necessary formation, tools, skills, and discipline to help contribute to nation building—in one’s family, group of friends, organizations, community, and the society at large. Once inducted, a Fellow renews his fellowship in the Foundation through his annual contribution which depends on his financial capacity, active participation in at least one APP, and by recommending at least one application to UFP per year.
Beyond improving one’s capacity for leadership tasks, a Fellow gains access to all the APPs offered by Universitas, its global network of leaders, and international training programs with partner institutes, all geared to strengthening one’s personal and professional development, in order for each one to contribute better to society.
