Congratulations to our 2022 Junior Fellows!

Catalina Clark, Sarah Naser, Will Shehan, and Walker Waite
Started in 2017, the Marin Catholic Junior Fellowship Program is an opportunity offered to all students in the spring of their Junior year. The program challenges students to propose, design, and implement a self-directed learning experience to complete over the summer.  Applications are submitted in April and then reviewed by the Junior Fellowship panel. The panel chooses four students to complete their projects. Once chosen, these fellows are not only tasked with completing their research and projects, but they are required to attend a number of workshops, work directly with the Director of the Junior Fellowship program, and log 50+hours of work. In September, Junior Fellows present their projects to the Junior Fellowship panel, family, friends, and MC faculty. Upon successful completion of their projects, Fellows are awarded a $400 stipend and recognition at the Fall Honors Assembly, Senior Honors Assembly, and Graduation.

To learn more about the 2022 individual projects, see below.
