Whittier College Fellowship

 

The Brethren Community Foundation Fellowship is designed to offer a transitional opportunity for Whittier College students to engage in authentic grassroots community driven development in East Africa via the work of Global Partners for Development and their partner communities. 

The fellowship program is a partnership between the Brethren Community Foundation, Global Partners, and Whittier College, and represents a groundbreaking initiative in developing global leaders while delivering impactful outcomes to communities in need. This program is designed to be a transformational opportunity for Whittier students to engage in authentic grassroots community driven development in East Africa via the work of Global Partners and their partner communities.

Through the generous support of the Brethren Community Foundation, 100 percent of costs associated with the fellowship will be funded for Whittier students. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to use a meaningful budget to design and implement a project that will impact communities in Tanzania, and study the ongoing impact of this work. 

2019 fellows – Harrison Fuller and Piper Lowinger!
