Amherst Summer Institute Student Fellowships on Replenishing Democracy
We are pleased to announce the Third Ford Foundation Summer Institute on Replenishing Democracy, June 9-23, 2007 at Amherst College. Undergraduates with interests in social justice and activism are encouraged to apply.
This program for undergraduates is designed to encourage connections between academic institutions and grassroots activism. The Institute will bring together distinguished scholars and activists with
undergraduates to rigorously study the theory and practices of democratic engagement. In this forum, undergraduate student leaders will learn about the complexities of political ction and gain practical
knowledge about grassroots organizing.
Twenty-five undergraduates with demonstrated interests in social activism and leadership skills will be invited to participate. Preference will be given to students between their junior and senior years, and efforts will be made to ensure that a diverse group of students is chosen. The selected group will include students from the United States, South Africa and India.
The Institute will be free of charge for the selected participants. The participants will be provided with the necessary course materials and reimbursed for their travel expenses to Amherst.
Further information about the program and online application materials are available at: http://www.amherst.edu/~democracy/.
The Institute follows Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action policies and
encourages women, minorities and persons with disabilities to apply.
