The Service-Learning Fellows Program will be accepting applications until April 18 for up to seven fellowships that come with a $2,500 award.
The opportunity is for a year-long faculty development program for selected faculty members to investigate, develop, implement and integrate service-learning into their teaching, research and public service work while becoming recognized campus leaders in service-learning pedagogy and community engagement.
The Service-Learning Fellows Program is supported by the Office of Service-Learning and is open to all permanent, full-time UGA faculty members including academic tenure track, academic professionals, public service faculty and clinical faculty members with an interest in service-learning. Previous experience in service-learning pedagogy or familiarity with service-learning or civic engagement research is not required.
Complete information is available online (www.servicelearning.uga.edu/engage/2008-09SLF.pdf).
