The Fellows Experience

Community | Instruction | Formation | Imagination

The Charter Class of Franklin Fellows has been working, studying, serving and connecting – building bridges that will help them glorify God for the rest of their lives life. Fellows spend their time in paid internships, graduate study, service in the church and the community and spending time in Franklin and Nashville, building enduring friendships with other Fellows.
