Fellowships through Carolina for Kibera provide opportunities for students to gain hands-on experience learning about global issues in a real world setting. Fellows are invited to collaborate with our Kibera staff as well as design and implement their own projects at a grassroots level. We provide a range of services and programming across our initiatives.
Our James and Florence Peacock Fellowship is open to both undergraduate and graduate students at UNC-Chapel Hill. Two students are typically selected each year for the fellowship program. Students receive a stipend to cover airfare and living expenses. The other half of the fellowship will be earmarked for the volunteer project with CFK.
The 2019 Peacock Fellowship application is open until December 15, 2018. Any application submitted after the deadline will not be considered for this fellowship. Supplemental materials (i.e. letter of recommendation and resume/CV) will need to be emailed following completed application submission. Email materials to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Attend one of our information sessions this fall to learn how you can work with change-makers to combat poverty in Kibera. You will learn about the history of Carolina for Kibera, current programs and services we offer in the community, and ways you can get involved and affect long-lasting, sustainable change.
