Wayne and Theresa Embry Fellowship 2022 for Canadians ($35,000 CAD stipend)

Deadline: February 25, 2022

Applications are open for the Wayne and Theresa Embry Fellowship 2022. The Fellowship will provide two Canadians the opportunity to gain firsthand experience in a professional basketball operations environment.

The Raptors commit to providing at least one of the fellowship opportunities to an individual who identifies as part of a marginalized and/or racialized group. 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 after the NBA draft and prior to start of 2021-22 season and receive a $35,000 CAD stipend which will be paid out semi-monthly.


  • The Toronto Raptors are looking for individuals who, like Wayne & Theresa Embry, demonstrate a commitment to social impact and the game of basketball.
  • Ideal candidates are community leaders working in basketball and/or working professionals with a passion for the game.


Mr. Embry is a big believer in the eight Ps:

  • Perseverance
  • Persistence
  • Preparation
  • Passion
  • Perception
  • Pride
  • Purpose
  • Performance

If you have demonstrated a commitment to these words in your life, this may be the opportunity for you.
