Fellowship to Enhance Global Understanding
In 2009, the College of Education created a Fellowship program to send a group of graduate students to China for three weeks of immersion in Chinese academic culture at the Southwest University, Beibei Chongqing. In 2011, the college formally expanded the Fellowship to Enhance Global Understanding (FEGU) program to include faculty-led programs to China, Botswana, and Vietnam. Since 2011 faculty have also led groups in FEGU study abroad programs in Cyprus, Indonesia, Mexico, Cuba, and the Netherlands. The college provides support for the Fellowship programs in order to further our mission of promoting global perspectives on educational cultures, policies and practices.
In the the 2020-21 academic year , the College will offer a fellowship program for doctoral students to be led by Professors Dorinda Carter Andrews and Chezare Warren. This fellowship will focus on race and colonization in global contexts, and its international travel portion will involve a study program in summer 2021 to South Africa.
Information about this program and the application process will be available in Fall 2020.
