In Fall 2020, the IDEA committee proposed a mechanism for post-candidacy graduate students in EPS to carry out meaningful projects in public outreach or other DEI activities via the EPS Public Outreach/DEI Graduate Fellowships. These fellowships take the place of teaching fellowship assignments for some EPS graduate students and come with a time commitment of 8-10 hours per week for one semester. Participation in the Public Outreach/DEI Fellowship program will be by application, and the inaugural Fellows will be named for the Fall 2021 semester. The application process for fellowships for the 2021-2022 academic year is posted below and has also been distributed to graduate students via email.
Completed applications and project partner support letters should be sent via email to Maureen Long (firstname.lastname@example.org), IDEA committee chair, by Friday, April 30, 2021.
Students who have questions, who are unsure how to go about crafting a project plan, or who would like to get feedback on a project idea are encouraged to contact the DGS or the IDEA committee for advice, discussion, or ideas – feel free to get in touch with the chair or any member of the committee.
