The deadline for the prestigious Knapp Fellowship for Entrepreneurial Service-Learning is this Friday, January 12, 2018, at 11:59 p.m. Apply be e-mailing the application (which can be found here) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check out our detailed interviews with last year's fellows, Chloe King and Gayatri Malhotra. Chloe is working with the World Wildlife Fund to reduce food waste in D.C. schools and Gayatri is working with Teach for India and Girl Rising on a gender sensitization curriculum in New Delhi.
The award will recognize one or more innovative proposals each year and will provide support for their implementation. Up to $10,000 will be awarded each academic year.
Undergraduate and graduate students with one more semester may apply independently or with a group of students to design and create solutions that will make a significant difference in the lives of others.
Awardees must work with the support and guidance of a faculty member on their research and action projects.
Students who apply should demonstrate knowledge and innovative thinking about the issue or problem to be addressed. Selection is at the discretion of the Provost, who reviews recommendations made by a committee of faculty and representatives from the Honey W. Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service.
Once chosen, fellows work throughout the project with a faculty advisor who guides research on the issue, implementation of the proposal, ongoing reports and assessments, and a final work of scholarship.
