The Napier Initiative is more than a financial awards program. The Napier Initiative is a
relational program which links students with Pilgrim Place elders whose lifetime of experience
in social justice work has an affinity with the student's proposed project. The relationships
which develop over the year can be life affirming and long lasting. The Napier Initiative has
established a set of expectations for a Napier Fellow.
