Wayne Embry Fellowship
The Wayne Embry Fellowship provides one Canadian the opportunity to gain firsthand experience in a professional basketball operations environment.
The fellowship consists of rotations to provide growth of knowledge and experience in all facets of an NBA basketball team. These include: coaching, scouting, team services, player development, medical, financial, equipment, travel and G-League. Each rotation will include a mentor and specific responsibilities in order to learn the role that each department plays within an NBA organization.
As the fellow, you will also have the opportunity to gain event operations experience at NBA Summer League and Basketball without Borders world camp held during NBA All-Star weekend. Travel and accommodations for these events will be covered as part of the Fellowship experience. The fellow will begin on July 2, 2019 and receive a $30,000 CAD stipend which will be paid out semi-monthly.
