Fellowships

The Frederick Douglas Global Fellowship

The scholarship is named in honor of Frederick Douglass – the AfricanAmerican social reformer, abolitionist, orator, writer, and international statesman – to highlight the characteristics that today’s young leaders need most: a keen intellect, a strong work ethic, and a global perspective. Consistent with Douglass’ legacy, Frederick Douglass Global Fellows are meritorious individuals who demonstrate high academic achievement, exemplary communication skills, possess the hallmarks of self-determination, exhibit characteristics of bold leadership, and who have a history of service to others. In the spirit of one of America’s most powerful intellectuals, communicators, and scholars, Frederick Douglass Global Fellows commit to sharing their experience and intercultural growth with peers and classmates, before, during, and after the fellowship.

Online applications are open and must be submitted by September 17th, 2017.
