Community Engagement Fellowship: Overview
Engagement Fellowships are one-year fellowships for City College
undergraduates who design and carry out a project that addresses
community needs in a sustainable way.
WHO IT'S FOR
Community Engagement Fellowships are for CCNY undergraduates of any discipline or major. The program seeks students who are involved with their communities, who value awareness of community concerns, and who hope to advocate for positive change through ongoing work with community organizations and community leaders.
Fellows receive an initial $5,000 for their first funding year. They may also request up to $3,000 of additional funding for previously funded projects going into their second or third year.
HOW IT WORKS
Applications for Community Engagement Fellowships are available in
January. The fellowship can support a variety of student-led initiatives
from projects begun in service-learning classes to the launching of
CCNY chapters of national nonprofit organizations. Preference is given
to projects that address any of the Center's priority areas:
international development and security, community and economic
development, education, the environment, and health.
