Help support the next generation of undergraduate leaders dedicated to cultural pluralism, advocacy, and social change. Your gift supports resources for Rawlings Fellows and prepares them for leadership roles. Established at UMD in 2006, the Rawlings Program is part of undergraduate studies in the School of Public Policy. Students apply in the spring for a yearlong fellowship cohort that enters the following fall. Those who are chosen as fellows engage in a holistic experience comprising two consecutive semesters of specialized activities, educational programming, and skill development to learn about ethical leadership and advocating for important issues. Fellows take nine credits of coursework focusing on leadership, policy, advocacy, and social change.
