Class of 2021 and 2022 students: Apply for France-Merrick Civic Fellowship

The France-Merrick Civic Fellowship is seeking talented applicants for the France-Merrick Civic Fellows program. This fellowship will engage a diverse cohort of six full-time Homewood undergraduate students (juniors and seniors) to lead efforts in creating a culture of Baltimore-based service and engagement for Hopkins undergraduates. This experiential program will allow fellows to gain an understanding of civic- and community-based systemic issues and opportunities.

During the yearlong fellowship, students will:

  • commit to full participation in community service and cohort activities throughout the academic year.
  • receive a $3,500 stipend for living expenses and transportation or project needs during the fellowship.
  • engage with campus and community mentors for personal and professional development.
  • foster an understanding and commitment to social issues, root causes, and systemic challenges.
  • create and implement a community and civic engagement plan for the fellowship year, and their future commitment to the communities they call home.
  • commit to at least 10 hours of engagement weekly, including service, reflection, and professional development.

An information session will be held at 4 p.m. on Feb. 28 at the Center for Social Concern.
