UC National Center for Free Speech and Civic Engagement 2020-21 Fellows Program

Deadline: March 6, 2020

The UC National Center for Free Speech and Civic Engagement is accepting applications for its 2020-2021 Fellows Program through March 6.

Each year, the Center selects up to 10 fellows from a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds such as law, journalism, higher education, social science, technology and government. Fellows receive a $20,000 stipend to further the national conversation related to expression and civic engagement on college campuses including how to advance campus dialogue and further viewpoint diversity and inclusivity.

The Center welcomes candidates from all backgrounds to apply. Students, postdocs and other trainees, faculty, or staff are potentially eligible. As part of the University of California, the Center is committed to promoting diversity and equal opportunity in its education, services and administration, as well as research and creative activity. 

The Center invites a wide range of projects. We are especially interested in projects that will have a direct impact on individuals and communities across and within campus constituencies. We are focused on projects that enhance our understanding of how free speech is and can be practiced in American higher education within the context of our current climate.
