The Elizabeth Dole Foundation is now accepting applications for our 2017 class of Dole Caregiver Fellows!
Help us spread the word to caregivers who you think are ready to stand in front of our nation’s leaders as representatives of the 5.5 million hidden heroes caring for wounded, ill, and injured service members and veterans.
Since the inaugural class in 2012, the Dole Caregiver Fellows have presented in front of Congress, participated in landmark caregiver studies, provided feedback directly to the Secretary of Veterans Affairs and White House, guided councils of experts developing new caregiver resources, served as supportive and knowledgeable peers in their local communities and nationwide, and shared their stories through hundreds of media interviews.
Our online application is open until October 28. We strongly recommend that interested caregivers begin their application well in advance of the deadline.
The Fellows program is open to military and veteran caregivers of ALL eras. Visit our application link for additional details.
Please share this link with your networks on social media using the hashtag #hiddenheroes and our handle, @DoleFoundation.
Thank you for helping ensure our hidden heroes are well represented on the national stage.
