The Knapp Fellowship for Entrepreneurial Service-Learning

Want to change the world?! Need $10,000 to do it?

Well then here’s the fellowship for you!

The Knapp Fellowship for Entrepreneurial Service-Learning originated in a 2010 endowment that makes it possible for exceptional GW students to combine scholarship with action to change the world.

Undergraduate and graduate students with one more semester may apply independently or with a group of students to design and create solutions that will make a significant difference in the lives of others.

Awardees must work with the support and guidance of a faculty member on their research and action projects.

Students who apply should demonstrate knowledge and innovative thinking about the issue or problem to be addressed.  Selection is at the discretion of the Provost, who reviews recommendations made by a committee of faculty and representatives from the Honey W. Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service.

Once chosen, fellows work throughout the project with a faculty adviser who guides research on the issue, implementation of the proposal, ongoing reports and assessments, and a final work of scholarship.

Apply by February 21, 2017 at 5pm. All applicants should submit completed applications to gwserves@gwu.edu.
