Fellowships and Grants
The Bonner Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) supports four summer Civic Fellowship Programs--the David D. Burhans Civic Fellowship, the Deborah L. Marsh Civic Fellowship, the F. Amanda DeBusk Civic Fellowship, and the Abby Brown Ayers Civic Fellowship--all under the umbrella of the UR Summer Fellowships Program. The Burhans, Marsh, DeBusk, and Ayers Civic Fellowships provide funding for students completing otherwise-unpaid or nominally paid, academically grounded 8-10-week internships in the nonprofit or government sectors.
The CCE also sponsors the Urban Education Fellowship,which provides funding for selected students serving at a Richmond non-profit providing summer enrichment opportunities for youth.
In addition to these fellowship opportunities for students, the CCE offers grants for faculty interested in creating a community-based learning course.
Additional funds are available to support and/or co-sponsor student-initiated and student-led programming that contributes to the center's mission. These funds include the Community Fund, the Conference Fund, the Education and Awareness Fund, and the Mentoring Fund.
