Bored and looking for something to do?

Interested in Art or Leadership?  Read on…


The Bush Foundation is offering two Fellowships, with qualifications.  Both Fellowships give $48,000.00 and are looking for leaders and Artists.  These Fellowships seem to be are congruent with the International Peace Project, but The international Peace Project is not the grantor of the Fellowships.  Also, if the participants choose to go to Minnesota (which is where St. Mary’s Basilica is – with The Indigo Drum Peace Project in Minneapolis)  for one or two years prior to applying for these fellowships. 

Younger and Older people would attain much better opportunities with the Peace Project and being known by others, even if they do not get the Fellowship award, than listening to people who tell them that selling narcotics is going to make them important and give them a ‘political launch’.
