Fellows participate in an eight-week internship with a local organization focused on educational issues. Organizations past fellows have worked with include BRIDGES, Facing History and Ourselves, Shelby County Schools, Literacy Mid-South, LITE Memphis, and Whole Child Strategies. In addition, fellows participate in weekly seminars with Educational Studies faculty and have the opportunity to engage with a nationally recognized scholar of urban education as well as students in the Master of Arts in Urban Education program during a summer conference.

Students are provided with a $3000 stipend for their work, as well as housing on campus for the duration of the fellowship. Applications are typically due in mid-February for the summer cohort. Contact Prof. Laura Taylor for more information.
