We are thrilled to introduce this unique fellowship that identifies and amplifies the skills and visions of emerging, undergraduate peace and justice leaders. Held by the Consortium of North American Peace Programs and sponsored by the Gettysburg College Peace and Justice Studies Program, and the Garthwait Leadership Center at Gettysburg College, this fellowship is the first of its kind. All undergraduate students (from Canada, the US, and Mexico) with at least one academic year remaining in their education, upon completion of the fellowship, are eligible to apply.
Selected fellows will be invited to Gettysburg College for a week of intensive programming designed to develop their leadership skills in the realm of peace and justice work. From January 8th through January 14th, 2022, fellows will meet with academics and practitioners to learn tangible skills and create their own social change projects. Fellows will be expected to implement their own projects upon completion of the fellowship. In addition, we will follow this cohort of fellows for three years as they embark on their careers in order to assess the efficacy of this training. Selected fellows will have all expenses paid to attend the week of programming in January of 2022, including accommodation, transportation, and meals.
