Fellowships and Other Funding

Stephanie Jean-Charles Memorial Fellowship

The Stephanie Jean-Charles Memorial Fund provides fellowships to enable MPP students to participate in internships and conduct Applied Policy Projects in non-governmental organizations serving underprivileged communities both in the U.S. and abroad, and to support social entrepreneurial activities undertaken by groups of students to serve those same communities.  The Senior Assistant Dean for Student Services, Jill Rockwell, manages the application process. Applications, found here, are accepted on a rolling basis, and decisions are made by committee.  Interested students must submit an application that includes:  

  • A description of the internship or project, specifying how expenses will be incurred, and the project’s relevance to the mission of the Stephanie Jean-Charles Memorial Fund.
  • An itemized budget detailing expenses.

There is a $250 “deductible” on fellowship awards.
