UCSD Community and Labor Project Summer Fellowship Program
The Community and Labor Project Summer Fellowship Program is a leadership development and training program that gives UCSD graduate students in-depth career experience as researchers and organizers in the San Diego labor and social justice movement.
What does it mean to participate as a host organization in the Community and Labor Project Summer Fieldwork Program?
- You will work with a half-time, pre-trained & screened grad student fellow for 7 weeks
- Cost of $7,200 per student fellow ($5000 stipend plus a $2,000 training/program support fee)
- Your organization commits one staff member to participate in the Summer Fellowship Program training/orientation. This would entail facilitating a workshop session and a brief presentation introducing your organization's campaigns during the fellowship orientation week.
- Access to the program trainings and resources for any of your staff who may benefit.
- Your organization commits to supervise and mentor your student fellow. This includes preparing an introduction to your organization, clearly communicating roles and responsibilities, participating in weekly check-ins with your student and a midpoint check-in with UCSD Community and Labor Project staff, and providing a final evaluation of the fellowship placement.
First Year Program Capacity: 5-10 students total, to be divided among participating organizations
Each student you will host: $5000 stipend plus $2000 programing costs ($7000 total per student fellow)
Payroll and administrative aspects around student fellowships will be managed by UCSD. Program fee must be paid no later than May 30, 2016 in order for this process to be completed before the start of the program. Late payments may result in a delayed start date for your student fellow.
