The Social Innovation Fellowship is a platform for students and communities to explore and develop innovations that address pressing problems in our society. This award-winning program supports up to 18 projects each year that are led by students and community leaders. Fellows participate in a year of intensive skills training, complementary coursework, and a community of social innovators offering mentorship and critique. Student fellows are awarded funding to work full-time on the social innovation over the summer.
In some cases, Social Innovation Fellows are student founders of their own social impact venture - these include student-run organizations, businesses, and non-profits. In other cases, Social Innovation Fellows are teams of local community leaders and students who are collaboratively building a new and innovative capacity in Rhode Island.
