VIA and AUA have decided to discontinue the Mosaic Fellowship partnership in 2013-2014 and won't be accepting applications for next year's fellowship.
The Mosaic Fellowship funds a fellowship of up to $4,500 for one of VIA's incoming one-year Indonesia volunteers and is jointly funded by VIA and Creative Learning. Creative Learning launched the America's Unofficial Ambassadors (AUA) program as an initiative designed to increase the number of Americans who volunteer in education, health, community needs, and civil society in the Muslim world. The goal of this AUA program is to build peace at a grassroots level in America and throughout the Muslim World by increasing the number of substantive, cross-cultural partnerships that support higher standards of living, greater economic opportunities, and increased freedoms.
The Dr. and Mrs. C.J. Huang Teaching Fellowship enables two fellows to experience life in a rural area of China - one which is becoming more unique as China's modernization continues to unfold. Fellows teach at a rural middle and high school and are given an opportunity to learn more about an area of China that most foreigners will never get to see firsthand. This fellowship provides full funding for a year in China and includes round-trip airfare, waived program fees, $1,000 for a service project, and a $1,000 readjustment bonus at the end of the fellowship.
