Who This Is For

College students who have demonstrated an interest in the scholarly study of race and race relations and are interested in facilitating productive conversations about race using the Courageous Conversation® framework.

What to Expect

Fellows will receive extensive training and support that draws on the 30-year history of Courageous Conversation® and will engage in the following:

  1. Courageous Equity Leadership Fellows will host and facilitate regularly scheduled conversations about race on their campus.
  2. Fellows will collaborate with their counterparts from other universities, across the globe, via an online platform throughout the year.
  3. Fellows will develop forums and virtual platform activities and events to foster intraracial and interracial relationships on campus and among youth across the globe.
  4. Fellows will work with the Global Foundation to mitigate racial trauma and facilitate healing when incidents of racial strife occur in their communities.
