The Loewenstern Fellowship provides students with funding, preparation, mentorship, and support to conduct critical service and/or civic research outside of the United States. Past Loewenstern fellows have worked in South America, Latin America, Asia, and Africa with partner organizations focused on a variety of social issues
including education, healthcare, political and economic development, and gender equality.

Fellows receive funding to cover the cost of their summer abroad. Fellows enroll in a semester-long, two-credit International Service course in spring 2022 before traveling to the host country during summer 2022. The course provides a critical lens to international development and frameworks for ethical global engagement.

We welcome all Rice undergraduate students to apply. Given that students were not able to travel internationally last year, we are allowing all returning undergraduate students AND seniors to apply for Loewenstern this year.

Application deadline: October 28, 2021, 11:59 pm CDT
