The Social Innovation Fellowship provides meaningful community engagement and social innovation experiences for undergraduate students at Brown. Focusing on local partnerships and social impacts through the lens of innovation, this two-year developmental program offers students the opportunity to explore modes of social innovation and the tools required for starting successful ventures or for making transformational changes within existing organizations. Additionally, students’ work enhances the ability of nonprofit community organizations to use student talent effectively helping build organizational capacity while exploring ideas within the local social innovation ecosystem.
The Fellowship endeavors to build a learning community of students, faculty and community partners who are engaged in thinking about the nature of social innovation, the dynamics of sustained community change, and the connections between academic, community work, and active citizenship.
The Social Innovation Fellowship is possible thanks to the generous support of Kenneth Cole through the Kenneth Cole Foundation.
Applications for the Social Innovation Fellowships are available on UFunds and due February 24, at 12 pm ET. Reach out to Steve Pokorny, Program Manager, Student Development: email@example.com at the Swearer Center.
