NOVA is short for “Innovation!”
We know that students often come to college with big hopes and plans, but lack the tools, the team, and the resources that allow them to flourish and follow their passions.
The mission of the NOVA Fellowship at TU is to find, equip, and inspire students of all majors to follow their passion and develop innovative projects that benefit others – while still in school.
Here are a few qualities that we look for when choosing our brand new NOVA Fellows:
- They make things happen and have an “itch” to make a difference.
- They think up new ways to do things and like working with others.
- They believe there’s no better way to learn than by doing.
Does this sound like you?
People aren’t numbers, so we’re not into GPAs. We are a lot more interested in the passion of the person and their ability to collaborate and follow-through on projects. We’re creating a fun-loving and discovery-oriented community at TU, filled with students of all majors and talents and accomplished faculty and professionals.
If you’re selected, you’ll have access to:
- Personal development and leadership opportunities,
- An array of resources, and
- Ongoing collaboration and feedback with the larger NOVA community.
Our number one priority is to give students an unforgettable experience that develops their unique talents and shows them how to apply them to real-world projects. We will insure that each student has the tools, the team, and the resources to do something exceptional. At the end of the Fellowship experience, students will have a portfolio of their work and a certificate to show off.
We invite you to apply today to be part of NOVA!
The next round of student and faculty applications will be due April 16, 2021.
