Deepening Santa Clara University students' commitment to social justice through community-based work.
2019 – Jean Donovan Fellows
Fifteen Santa Clara University students selected as Jean Donovan Fellows for Summer 2019 will work with community-based organizations around the world to deepen their understanding of and commitment to social justice. This Summer’s Fellows will be working in the following areas: immigration, human rights, healthcare, education, and community development.
The Jean Donovan Summer Fellowship is named in honor of Jean Donovan, an American woman who lived, worked, and died in solidarity with the impoverished and oppressed of El Salvador in the 1980s. The Donovan Fellowship is designed to encourage and support undergraduate students who desire to deepen their understanding of social justice issues through a summer community-based learning experience of 5-7 weeks. The Fellowship provides $2,000 in grant funding to recipients who work a minimum of 30 hours/week with a non-profit organization locally, domestically, or abroad.
