Diamond in the Rough Fellowship Program
The Diamond in the Rough Fellowship [DIR] Program, administered by
THE Frazier Foundation, a national 501c-3 IRS designated nonprofit organization, presents a dynamic and continuous leadership development endeavor.
The program is tailored for exceptional candidates who showcase academic integrity, innate leadership acumen, and a profound dedication to public service that transcends mandatory service-learning requisites for high school volunteer hours or college credit.
Meticulously chosen, Diamond Fellows embody academic excellence, leadership potential, and a steadfast commitment to community service that surpasses expectations.
A unique facet of the program, Diamond Fellows possess the autonomy to select mentors from our esteemed collaboration, Tall Girls United Executive Officers and Regional Captains, as well as Tall Girls United Fund [TGU Fund (501c-3)] members and partners. This alliance ensures personalized mentorship, guiding the Diamond Fellows through their transformative journey.
