Fellowship Opportunity—Global Stewards
The Graduate School announces the 2012-2013 Community and Global Stewards Fellowship competition. Community Stewards are encouraged to engage social issues and challenges students to embrace a scholarship of engagement that connects our intellectual resources to the pressing social, civic and ethical problems in our communities and the world.
As community stewards, LUC graduate students will be provided with opportunities to demonstrate how their graduate study and research connects with a larger public by partnering with community groups, grassroots organizations, local businesses, and industries to help address societal needs.
Fellowships of $2000-$3000 each will be awarded on a competitive basis to outstanding students who have a demonstrated record of academic excellence and community service. The awards can be used for a variety of purposes, including internship and community-based research support. Criteria for eligibility and directions for submission can be found on the graduate school website under Financial Assistance.
Applicants must submit all application materials electronically to Dr. Patricia Mooney-Melvin, Associate Dean of the Graduate School by the end of business on November 18, 2012.
