Each year, Washington University’s Brown School partners with Gephardt Institute for Civic and Community Engagement to award one Gephardt Fellow with full tuition. As part of the award, the selected fellow will work for ten hours per week with the Gephardt Institute staff and programs. The Gephardt Fellow plays an integral role in advancing the Gephardt Institute’s mission and deepening its impact through programming and services.

As a Master’s of Social Work candidate, the fellow is expected to be an active community member and leader at the Brown School.  At the same time, the Gephardt Fellow should also recognize that the Gephardt Institute serves the entire university, and be prepared to become familiar and work with other schools and departments.

Please review the fellowship position description to understand the full scope of Gephardt Fellow responsibilities over two years (four academic semesters).

Finalists will receive email communication to schedule a Zoom interview.
