Civic and Voter Engagement Fellowship – Oct 6

Posted by Project Pericles on September 19, 2023

Project Pericles is inviting applications from faculty and staff for our Civic and Voter Engagement Fellowship (2023-2024) supported by the Mellon Foundation. Fellows are awarded $1,000 grants to use our Civic Engagement Resources with a focus in the humanities. They will build on our modules, participate in virtual learning communities, and contribute new materials to our Civic Engagement Resource Database.

The current times demonstrate the crucial need to develop a new generation of diverse civic leaders that embrace their role in making a difference in society. Voter participation is a key component of our democracy, and yet, many barriers exist to full participation—especially for youth and historically underrepresented populations. This fellowship empowers faculty, staff, and students to effectively engage with relevant social justice issues and address these inequalities. Fellows are faculty and staff who implement Periclean Civic Engagement Resources in the humanities or through a humanities lens (see fellowship tracks below). A goal of the fellowship is to demonstrate the relevance of the humanities in addressing real-world issues.

Faculty and staff from higher education institutions are eligible.

Applications are awarded on a rolling basis, with a priority deadline of October 6.
