Apply to Purpose Project Graduate Fellowships
Supported by funding from DukeEngage and The Purpose Project at Duke, GradEngage is an opportunity for up to 24 Duke graduate students to deepen a partnership with a North Carolina community during academic year 2021-2022. GradEngage fellowships create opportunities for students to explore their vocation and the purpose of their graduate work by engaging with a community on a pressing social issue.
The Race and the Professions Fellowship is a program of the Purpose Project at Duke, a campus-wide, faculty-led effort cultivating moral purpose, fostering virtuous community, and promoting flourishing professions. The Fellowship is a year-long program inviting first-year Duke graduate and professional students to explore racial justice and anti-racism within the professions. All incoming, first-year graduate and professional students are invited to apply.
Eighteen Fellows will meet about a dozen times across Fall and Spring semesters for moderated conversations that will feature visiting speakers from a variety of professions. Each session will require modest preparation. Over the course of the year, Fellows will develop individual or joint proposals for summer projects aimed at ‘‘on-the-ground” racial justice and anti-racism work.
