Opportunity: 2019-2020 Beyond the Bars Fellowship Application is Now Available

July 23, 2019 Opportunities

The Beyond the Bars Fellowship offers students and community members an interdisciplinary leadership development program to develop and deepen their identity, analysis, skills and network towards ending mass incarceration and creating a more just and safe world. 

Through seminars, workshops and guest lectures, Fellows explore their own experiences and identities as people working for social change; gain a theoretical and practical understanding of mass incarceration; and are introduced to various models of social change including community organizing, legislative advocacy, messaging and communications and more. 

In addition, Fellows work together with the Center for Justice and the Criminal Justice Caucus to organize the annual Beyond the Bars Conference on ending mass incarceration and realizing social justice. The Fellowship is made up of both students and community members and their aim is to work collaboratively with the university and community towards social change.   

The priority application deadline is Monday, August 19th. After that applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until Monday, August 26th.
