Who Should Apply?

The six-month fellowship is open to Macalester juniors and sophomores in good academic standing (first preference will be given to juniors). Students of all majors are encouraged to apply. We are particularly interested in applicants who can demonstrate that they work well with others, are courageous, creative, gutsy, conscientious, inventive, hard working, and have excellent written and oral communication skills.

Fellowship time commitments

  • January 23-24, 2016: Mandatory overnight retreat. If you cannot commit to attending the retreat, you should not apply for the fellowship.
  • January 21-April 28: Spring seminar (4 credits).  On Tuesdays we meet 9-11 am.  On Thursdays we either go on a morning field trip (timing varies) or we have breakfast (8:15-9 am) plus seminar (9-11 am).
  • May 16-July 22: Full-time work with Twin Cities organizational partners, plus weekly Monday evening cohort meetings (either 6-8 pm or 7-9 pm).  Fellows receive a stipend, ten weeks of on-campus housing, and 1 academic credit for their summer work.  Any other paid, unpaid, or voluntary summer work must be discussed with Paul Dosh and clearly indicated on the application.
  • July 23-24: Celebratory camping trip and fellowship closure.
  • September (date TBA): Information and recruiting session (some past fellows may be studying away).
