Is Civics Unplugged a prestigious or noteworthy program?

Can anyone who has been a part of this program share their experience? Is this beneficial? What is a fellowship?

Hi! i did CU in spring of 2022. i can't speak for everyone who participated, but the fellowship was life-changing for me. i got to meet so many like-minded people, network with influential youth, learn about civic innovation, and was even awarded a grant i used to start my own nonprofit. i'd say it's somewhat prestigious, as the acceptance rate is about 10% on average. i highly recommend and have already encouraged some friends to apply for this coming session, so let me know if you have questions regarding the application, which i believe is due the 31st. apps are reviewed on a rolling basis, so try to submit it ASAP if you're interested.
