A brief description of the program, including examples of peer-to-peer outreach activities (1st program):

The Shi Center for Sustainability requests applications for student sustainability fellowships for Summer 2015. Furman students, including those graduating in May 2015, are eligible to apply. They focus on sustainability research and service on campus and in the community. Students from all majors are encouraged to apply. The students present at Furman Engaged. Furman Engaged celebrates the wide variety of undergraduate research, scholarship and creativity of our undergraduates. Launched by the Office of Undergraduate Research and Internships in 2009, this annual event brings our campus community and visitors together for a day of presentations, posters and performances across Furman's campus. Our students present topics from a range of disciplines, from research in the sciences and humanities to creative works in the fine arts. The Sustainability Fellows present their summer work and deliverables during Furman Engaged, an event intended for the entire campus to engage. Fellows also engage with their peers through social media, and through block sessions during New Student Orientation.


A brief description of how the student educators are selected (1st program):

To become a fellow, students must submit a resume, short statement of interest (no more than 500 words) that includes the names of the fellowship(s) desired, and the names of two references (professors on campus are preferred). If you are interested in more than one fellowship, students provide a statement of interest for each position. These will be shared with the site supervisor. Successful applicants will be scheduled an interview. From the remaining applicants, the fellows are selected.


A brief description of the formal training that the student educators receive (1st program):

All Fellows go through a week-long orientation upon the start of their internship.


A brief description of the financial or other support the institution provides to the program (1st program):

These fellowships pay $3600 for the summer and require approximately 10 full time consecutive weeks of work between May 15th and August 15th.
