The SE & SW IVP Fellowship Program provided an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students from diverse academic, professional, and demographic backgrounds to receive team mentoring from IVP professionals and gain hands-on experience in developing programmatic activities and content. Past Fellows had an opportunity to continue in a Senior Fellowship post-graduation. The Senior Fellowship provided an early-career professional with the opportunity to develop a suite of products in their area of interest. Each Fellow was awarded a stipend.

The first cohort of Fellows ran from January 2020 to August 2020. Fellows completed projects that examined regional ACEs prevention and resiliency programs, and national youth suicide prevention efforts. Our final Fellow cohort ran from August 2020 to July 2021.
