Denning Summer Fellowship
The Denning Summer Fellowship, funded through the Forest Foundation, is designed for students entering their junior or senior years (with a preference for rising seniors) who already have a foundation in community engagement and are seeking an in-depth experience working on a public issue of interest related to their academic major.
Following acceptance of an applicant's proposal, staff at the McKeen Center will work with fellowship recipients to identify an appropriate placement with an organization. Following the 10-week summer placement, students are encouraged to design an independent study or honors project related to their summer work to be taken up the following academic year.
