1)  Russell G. Mawby Fellowship in Philanthropic Studies

2)  Important Dates

1) The Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership announces the Russell G. Mawby Fellowship in Philanthropic Studies.

This Fellowship provides the opportunity for one GVSU faculty member to mentor two undergraduate students on a research project addressing relevant issues related to philanthropic studies. The first year’s topic will focus on Philanthropy and the American Presidency.  As a result of this research, the Mawby Fellows will be required to produce an original, tangible product, such as a research paper, a creative work, or a thoughtful essay.

The Fellowship is expected to last one year, although in some exceptional cases it may be extended over two years. Faculty Fellows will receive a $5,000 stipend (or $2,500 over two years). Open to all GVSU faculty.  Applications are due Friday, May 30, 2008. See www.gvsu.edu/jcp  for application materials. Contact: Sara Winchester at winchesa@gvsu.edu or 616.331.7589.
