The Lime Connect Fellowship Program For Students with Disabilities
The Lime Connect Fellowship Program for Students with Disabilities is Lime Connect’s flagship program in the U.S. designed for highly accomplished rising juniors with disabilities. This highly selective program: guides Fellows through the summer internship recruitment process; connects them with Lime Connect’s corporate partners - some of the world's leading corporations - for potential Summer internships; deepens their leadership skills; prepares them for success in their internship; builds their confidence as a person with a disability; engages them in a Lime Connect Fellowship community, consisting of current and past Fellows; and provides access to prestigious scholarships.
The Fellowship Program kicks off with a leadership & development symposium in New York in late July, and offers individual and group coaching, webinars, mentoring and Fellows community discussions throughout the year. Upon "graduation" from the program, Fellows become part of the larger Lime Connect Fellows Community and have access to ongoing professional development, community and networking opportunities throughout their careers.
