Call for Applications: Education and Social Justice International Summer Research Fellowships 2014

The Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Center for Social Justice Teaching, Research, and Service are inviting applications from Georgetown undergraduates for summer research fellowships. Fellows will spend three weeks abroad doing research and conducting interviews on best practices at the intersection of education and social justice. Before departing they will work with faculty to define their research projects and identify Jesuit-led institutions doing innovative educational work in support of poor communities that will serve as local hosts. The fellows' research will be posted on a project website, incorporated into a report, and presented to the Georgetown community at an event. The research fellowships include travel, lodging, and meals, and a $1500 stipend.
All Georgetown freshmen, sophomores, and juniors are eligible to apply. Interested candidates should send a resume, unofficial transcript, the contact information for two references—one of whom must be a Georgetown professor—and a personal statement of no more than 350 words. The statement should not be a research plan, but rather a description of the reasons for your interest in the program and your related skills and experience.

Completed application materials are due by Tuesday, January 21, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. and should be sent as Word document/PDF attachments to berkleycenter@georgetown.edu. Please contact Erin Coleman at ekc25@georgetown.edu with any questions.
