To be completed by a mentor or student-peer of the candidate
To the mentor or student peer:
The Chuck Green Civic Engagement Fellowship, administered by the Political Science Department at Macalester College, provides students with a unique opportunity to put their ideas into action. The program is competitive, with a maximum of 12 fellowships available for the Spring semester. Each selected fellow will serve a six-month fellowship that includes a spring seminar and a funded, full-time summer field experience. Each student fellow will study democratic engagement in social and organizational change, identify a client organization working for the public good with whom the student can analyze and address a problem, and then work with that client on a mutually agreed-upon solution over the summer months.
The Fellows will be expected to actively participate in all class sessions in the spring term, work collaboratively with one another as well as the client partners throughout the fellowship, and be available to serve as peer advisers for the class of Fellows to follow in their footsteps.
