Global and Intercultural Education Fellowship
Fellowships provide partial tuition remission for students who have the potential to contribute to the state of knowledge and scholarship in the field. Graduate student fellows develop their capacity to become leaders in the field and contribute to Mount Holyoke College’s research, professional engagement, and global initiatives. Fellows work closely with faculty to develop fellowship projects and are encouraged to publish and present on their work.
Preference is given to degree students, but non-degree students may also apply for Fellowships.
Area of Focus: The purpose of this fellowship is to assist in unique projects and research focused on global and intercultural education, which could include working with global educational systems or learners, adapting pedagogies and resources to be more accessible to learners from a wide range of cultural backgrounds, supporting intercultural education and advocacy, or projects that help enhance diversity and equity. The work may be done in the context of formal educational institutions, non-profit and non-governmental organizations, or in cross-sector partnerships.
