Apply for the Delay the Real World Fellowship and you're in the running for a $3,000 grant for your very own bold, exhilarating, and fulfilling adventure. For suggested adventures and inspiration, check out Delaying the Real World by Colleen Kinder.
Qualifications: Applicants must be in the greatest decade of life, (THE TWENTIES! — Ages 21 through 29), and a U.S. citizen. There is no educational requirement to apply.
Requirements: Eligible applicants must propose in writing via email a gutsy and worthwhile adventure in the spirit of Delaying the Real World and the young adventurers who fill the book.

The winner must begin the fellowship within four (4) months of award date, which will be no later than May 31st 2006, and be willing to report any fellowship-related escapades back to the fellowship committee, including occasional photographic evidence.
