The Center for Science, Technology & Society would like to invite undergraduate juniors to an information session on applying to the second class of their Global Social Benefit Fellows. The fellowship provides a comprehensive program of mentored, field-based study and research within the Global Social Benefit Incubator's worldwide network of social entrepreneurs. This fellowship is fully funded by a generous donor and combines a 6-7 week summer field experience in the developing world with two quarters of academically-rigorous research. The CSTS promises a richly rewarding yet personally and academically demanding experience-this requires a time-intensive nine-month commitment and is highly competitive. Each fellow will receive a support package to cover all international travel, in-country expenses, research costs and a modest summer stipend.
Students from all disciplines are welcome to apply during the winter of their junior year-the deadline for application is January 23, 2013. Plan on attending one of the information sessions for full details or read more about the program here. Register to attend one of the information sessions today!
