During the seven-month fellowship, fellows participate in a spring semester Political Science seminar focused on analyzing and addressing community-based issues. That summer, fellows receive a $5,000 stipend to complete a full-time, on-site project at a community-based organization to implement the recommendations developed in the spring.
Over 15 students from our department received awards this year.
Each year a number of faculty in our department work direclty with students on research that results in papers being published in national journals.
