Graduate Students Invited to Apply for RGK Summer Center Fellowship

The RGK Center for Philanthropy and Community Service at the University of Texas at Austin is inviting graduate students from around the United States to apply to the center's Summer Fellowship Program.

Fellows participate in an intensive four-week seminar (June 1-24, 2011) that culminates in the completion of papers for the RGK Center's working papers series. Over the course of the seminar, fellows will critically examine issues in the nonprofit sector and will work on their own research projects in nonprofit management, volunteerism, international civil society, social entrepreneurship, and philanthropic studies. Students are expected to submit a draft research paper that they would like to refine and prepare for academic publication during the summer program.

Ph.D. and masters-level graduate students considering doctoral work are invited to apply. The application process is competitive and takes into consideration the academic potential of the student and the working paper topic.

Stipends of $3,000 each are provided to each Summer Fellow. Housing near the UT Austin campus is provided by the RGK Center. No course credit is provided.

Complete program information and the application are available at the RGK Center Web site.
