Fellowships

The James and Florence Peacock Fellowship gives UNC-Chapel Hill students the opportunity to work in a collaborative environment alongside our Kibera staff.

 

Fellows for the 2015 Fellowship have been chosen! Dates will be posted for the 2016 Fellowship in August of 2015.

About the fellowship:

The Carolina for Kibera Fellowship allows UNC-CH undergraduate and graduate students to apply their skills and talents while engaging in grassroots participatory development in Nairobi, Kenya.

The yearlong fellowship begins in the spring semester with orientation, campus activity involvement and project formulation with CFK staff. In the summer, fellows travel to Nairobi, Kenya and spend a minimum of eight weeks implementing their project in Kibera. They will complete their project and help tell the story of Kibera on campus upon return to UNC. The fellowship includes a small stipend and other scholarship/grant opportunities are available through the Center for Global Initiatives.
