Please join staff and the inaugural fellows to learn more about the Provost's Graduate Academic Engagement Fellowship at the Netter Center!
The Provost’s Graduate Academic Engagement Fellowship at the Netter Center for Community Partnerships is a new opportunity for PhD students across all schools and fields at the University of Pennsylvania. Fellows will be outstanding students whose scholarship significantly involves Academically Based Community Service (ABCS) and related activities, including locally based community problem-solving, engaged scholarship, service learning, and learning by teaching in public schools.
The Fellowship will involve the following:
Years 1 and 2: Participation in a faculty-student seminar on community-engaged research and teaching, a research fund for each Fellow of $5,000 over the two years, and support to attend as well as present at conferences.
Year 2: A full fellowship in which Fellows continue their studies and/or work on their dissertation. This fellowship should be treated like an external fellowship consistent with the practices of your graduate group.
