Education and Social Justice International Summer Research Fellowships 2011 Report Launch
A presentation dinner with the 2011 Education and Social Justice Project fellows—Deven Comen (India), Codie Kane (El Salvador), and Conor Finnegan (South Africa)—provided the students with an opportunity to present their report.
The Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching, and Service invited applications from Georgetown undergraduates for summer 2012 research internships. Fellows spend three weeks abroad doing research and conducting interviews on best practices at the intersection of education and social justice. Before departing they work with faculty to define their research projects and identify a host institution doing innovative educational work in support of poor communities that will serve as a local host. The fellows' research is 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.
