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 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.
