Dr. Russell G. Mawby Fellowship in Philanthropic Studies
The Mawby Fellowship provides the opportunity for one member of the Grand Valley State University teaching faculty to work with two undergraduate students on a research project addressing relevant issues related to philanthropic studies. The Mawby Faculty Fellow, once selected, will choose two Undergraduate Fellows with whom she or he will work. The topic of the research will focus on the intersection between any field of academic study and the theory and/or practice of philanthropy.
As a result of this research, the Mawby Faculty and Undergraduate Fellows will be required to produce an original, tangible product, such as a research paper, a creative work, or a thoughtful essay, which will advance the understanding of the philanthropic and/or nonprofit sector.
This award is open to all members of the GVSU faculty, including teaching Administrative/ Professionals and Affiliates. Undergraduate Fellows will be chosen from members of the GVSU junior class of 2012-2013.
