Each year, the Urban Democracy Lab selects students for the Gallatin Global Fellowship in Urban Practice (GGFUP). The program provides funding of up to $5,000 and support for six to ten advanced BA and MA students to pursue extended, community-engaged, practice-based research projects in partnership with urban social justice organizations.
Based on a vision of sharing resources, producing practical scholarly research, and self-reflexively critiquing systems of power and privilege, the fellowship is built upon established long-term partnerships with community-based organizations. Each research project is co-designed by the host organization with faculty mentors and GGFUP fellows. Fellows prepare for their research project by taking a two credit seminar in the spring semester.
The 2021 Urban Practice Fellows and their community partner organizations are as follows:
Najah Aldridge (CAS BA) - The Clemente
Lau Guzmán (Gallatin BA) - The Loisaida Center
Nosheen Hossain (Gallatin BA) - WHEDco
Xixi Jiang (Gallatin BA) - Right To The City Alliance
