The annual Leader Fellowship provides TCSPP students in Chicago and California with the opportunity to create, implement, and evaluate a community based project of their choice at a non-profit organization. This year, up to two students will receive a $4000 fellowship and support from the Community Partnerships Department. Two fellowships are offered to students who create their own project and present their idea to the Community Partnership Department. Emphasis is placed on project feasibility, sustainability, innovation, and integration of community need into the project goals and outcomes.
Applications for the fellowship begins in late October, Fellows are selected in December, for specific dates please email Jill Glenn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
is currently a doctoral candidate in the Applied Behavior Analysis
program where she is working on completing her dissertation. Anusha is
passionate about promoting pro-social behavior through education, and
she applies this passion through her work with the fellowship. Her goal
under the Leader Fellowship is to establish an after-school
instructional clinic where early elementary school students will receive
intensive, individualized academic support. She hopes to start her own
non-profit organization one day that provides services to a given
community in need, and she believes this fellowship experience will help
her develop skills necessary to effectively lead an organization.
Alicia is currently a student in the M.S. Applied Behavior Analysis
program at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology and the
recipient of the 2014-2015 Community Partnerships Leadership Fellowship
with Become, Inc. She received her undergraduate degree from DePaul
University, a university whose mission emphasizes diversity, community
service, and social justice. Alicia feels that these principles are
engrained in her. Both her academic background and her experience
living in different areas of Chicago, witnessing dearth and disparity,
informed her decision to pursue higher education at The Chicago School.
Alicia feels honored and excited to work with Become, Inc. this academic
year because their goal of creating social justice and community change
closely align with her aspirations. She hopes to ultimately create a
positive social impact in marginalized and underserved communities,
optimizing the potential and resources within these communities, and
helping to create social justice and equality of opportunity.
