Students who have had impactful experiences through their community engaged scholarship should consider these next steps in sharing their work and continuing their scholarship:
Submit a proposal for funding to implement a new initiative that builds from the engagement and learning from your course. Several opportunities exist via the Honey W. Nashman Center’s GW Upstart program. Students with relatively small projects can consider the Public Service Grant Commission. Those with larger-scale initiatives might consider the Eco-Equity Challenge, Projects for Peace, or the Knapp Fellowship for Entrepreneurial Service-Learning. More information on all of these can be found here.
Submit a paper for publication to the International Undergraduate Journal for Service-learning, Leadership and Social Change. Accepted papers include project descriptions, case studies, and reflections.
Submit a paper for the Chase Prize. If you have written a piece that is about Washington, DC, you are encouraged to submit it to the University Writing Program's Julian Clement Chase prize.
Apply to be GW's Newman Fellow. The Campus Compact Newman Civic Fellowship program sponsors one student per participating institution to be a part of this national cohort of social change leaders. Nominations are open until Jan 20, 2020 (students also have the option to self-nominate).
