Full Scholarship to Study Social Justice Next Summer

submitted by dvorak@augsburg.edu

Ready to change the world? Apply for the Frederick Douglass Global Fellowship, a
full scholarship to study in Ireland in late summer 2021 with a cohort of student leaders from around the country!

The Frederick Douglass Global Fellowship was founded to empower students of color with a transformative experience abroad, much like Frederick Douglass was inspired by his travels. This year’s cohort is co-sponsored by the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs to commemorate the 175th anniversary of Douglass’s four-month journey around Ireland.

You’ll be based in Dublin and visit other cities where Douglass campaigned, while
meeting with government leaders and social justice activists. Special emphasis on leadership, social justice, agitation for positive change and cross-cultural understanding – so critical in 2020 of all years!

This opportunity is offered by CIEE, a study abroad organization that Augsburg partners with. All program fees are covered and airfare is COVERED – you only pay for your passport (if you need one) and a few meals.

All eligible students who submit an application also qualify for a $1,500 scholarship towards any CIEE summer program! You don’t have to win the fellowship to qualify for this funding!!

Deadline to apply: February 14
Apply at http://www.CIEE.ORG/FDGF
