Advancing Gender Equity Fellowship
Through the Advancing Gender Equity Fellowship, students can apply what they have learned about gender, diversity, and social justice through their academic and/or extracurricular activities to work with a nonprofit organization or government agency on social, political, or economic issues affecting women. Fellows can expand on an experience started through a course or extracurricular activity by continuing with an existing partner organization, or they can identify another relevant community organization.
Advancing Gender Equity Fellows spend a summer working full-time with a supervisor/mentor in a community organization of their choice. For opportunities during the fall, winter, or spring quarters, please see the Jane Stanford Fellowship program. Applicants propose their own placements in collaboration with their potential host organization. The application should effectively demonstrate that the intended partner organization has the need, interest, and capacity to work with an intern/fellow and to support the proposed work plan.
Upon selection, a suitable academic mentor is paired with the fellows in order to help them highlight options that assist with preparation for and follow up on the summer learning experience. Each Advancing Gender Equity Fellow receives a base stipend of $5,000 to support travel and living expenses during the summer. Financial aid and supplemental funding is available to students who qualify.
