Strayer’s Fellows for Justice offers scholarships for those seeking to create change
To recognize and advance the social justice conversations happening across the country, Strayer University launched Fellows for Justice, a scholarship program that will help students build talent and leadership skills to tackle the issues we face today.
Fellows for Justice offers a full-tuition scholarship for a Strayer University undergraduate program in accounting, business administration, criminal justice or information technology.
- In addition to their chosen degree program, students will:
- Enjoy opportunities to attend networking events with Strayer University leadership, community leaders and other members of the Fellows for Justice Program.
- Collaborate with other awardees on a project to address aspects of social justice, in partnership with a community-based organization.
- Gain access to professional coaching and development opportunities and peer-to-peer engagement.
- Join others in this program to share their experiences, discuss current social and economic issues and create positive action through professional development.
In addition to meeting Strayer University eligibility requirements, applicants were asked to submit a short essay response to one of three questions:
How will you use your degree to contribute to fighting for social justice in the United States?
If you could change one thing about your community, what would it be? And why?
How would participation in this fellowship program change your life?
The first cohort of fellows started with the fall quarter on October 6, 2020.
