Thriving Women Eagle Feather Fellows 2024-2025

We are proud to announce that Seventh Generation Fund is now accepting Eagle Feather Fellow applications for our Thriving Women program!

The Eagle Feather Fellows for Thriving Women provides unique mentorship opportunities for young Native women to build ties within the community, expand their knowledge, skills, and capacity, as well as empower them as future leaders. Selected individuals will engage in peer-centered conversations and gatherings (both virtual and in-person) that identify key priorities of Native young women and girls’ lives, dreams, and needs for healthy and safe futures. Eligible applicants are Indigenous-identified young women aged 18-24 and enrolled in post-secondary education or a traditional learning system. All participants will have the option to plan and organize their own Thriving Women projects within their communities with grant support from the Seventh Generation Fund for Indigenous Peoples. Stipends will be provided additionally for participation and engagement.
