Seaver College Student Fellowship for Equity and Social Justice
The Seaver College Student Fellowship for Equity and Social Justice will be awarded each year to two rising seniors who have demonstrated a deep and abiding commitment to issues of equity and social justice. Student fellows will pursue a project that has the potential to affect positive change at Seaver College in the areas of belonging, inclusion, equity and social justice.
To apply, students must submit a cover letter detailing their commitment to equity and social justice initiatives and a project proposal. Project proposals should be four to five pages in length detailing the project’s potential, timeline for completion, and plans for sustainable continuation beyond the implementation year. Students should identify a faculty sponsor who will support and mentor them through the completion of their project. Students awarded the fellowship will receive a $7,500 scholarship; faculty mentors will receive a $2,000 stipend.
Applications for the 2021–2022 academic year will be accepted through March 15, 2021, and award decisions will be made on April 30, 2021. The award is sponsored by the Seaver Dean’s Office.
