The Student Civic Fellowship Program
The Student Civic Fellowship Program is a diverse cohort of University of Washington Bothell undergraduate and graduate students that serve as peer leaders and organizers of research, service, and educational projects that focus on community-based learning and social justice action.
Examples of projects that previous Student Civic Fellows have supported are: Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, Cesar Chavez: A Social Justice Series, Alternative Spring Break, the Northshore School District Community Schools Project, and Earth Day. Fellows have presented at forums and conferences including the Teaching and Learning Symposium, the Innovation Forum, and the Continuums of Service conference. Additionally, fellows have developed campus-wide support for veterans and people with disabilities, have created social media tools for student and community engagement, and have conducted research that defines the needs of community organizations.
The Student Civic Fellows commit to their positions for one academic year. Each fellow receives a quarterly stipend and is supported throughout their term to develop and strengthen their leadership and professional skills.
