For close to two decades the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity has provided students critical experiential learning experiences via its interdisciplinary undergraduate fellowship programs and community engaged learning courses that asks students to analyze issues through the lens of critical race studies with an aim towards social justice. CCSRE offers undergraduate summer fellowships as part of its Social Justice and Community Engagement Program. These fellowships include:
- PRAXIS: Community Engagement, Advocacy and Social Change
- CBR: Community Based Research
- ITESO: Humanizing Pedagogies and Community Practice
- Technology and Racial Justice
- QSR: Queer Studies in Race + Queer Student Resources
- VAMP: Visual Art Making as Praxis
These fellowships support students interested in social change, activism, community organizing, and research by developing their analytical and practical skills as social change leaders, community advocates, and scholar-activists. Each cohort of fellows will be supported through specially designed CSRE courses, skill-building workshops, faculty mentors, and a dedicated coordinating team that will engage, challenge, and empower students as they delve into meaningful and transformative work with community partners.
Student fellows are eligible for $5,000–$7,000 depending on financial need and location-based factors. Most fellows will receive $5,000, as most projects are currently expected to be remote.
Applications due February 1st 2021
