Applications for the 2023 Beyond the Bars Fellowship Now Open

The application period for the next cohort of the Beyond the Bars Fellowship is now open! The Beyond the Bars Fellowship is a certificate-based program through the Center for Justice at Columbia University that offers interdisciplinary leadership to develop and deepen identity, analysis, skills, and networks toward ending mass criminalization and incarceration, and creating a more just and safe world.

The Center for Justice aims to bring together Columbia University students with the larger NYC community to create a diverse and rich learning environment that can be mutually beneficial to all Fellows. We encourage people impacted (directly and indirectly) by mass criminalization and incarceration to apply. You must reside in New York City or the surrounding areas to participate in the Fellowship.
