Eight students have been awarded the Gallatin Global Fellowship in Urban Practice to work with Urban Social Justice Organizations during Summer 2021.

Each year, the Urban Democracy Lab selects students for the Gallatin Global Fellowship in Urban Practice (GGFUP). The program provides funding of up to $5,000 and support for six to ten advanced BA and MA students to pursue extended, community-engaged, practice-based research projects in partnership with urban social justice organizations. 

Based on a vision of sharing resources, producing practical scholarly research, and self-reflexively critiquing systems of power and privilege, the fellowship is built upon established long-term partnerships with community-based organizations. Each research project is co-designed by the host organization with faculty mentors and GGFUP fellows. Fellows prepare for their research project by taking a two credit seminar in the spring semester.

The 2021 Urban Practice Fellows and their community partner organizations are as follows:

  • Najah Aldridge (CAS BA) – The Clemente
  • Lau Guzmán (Gallatin BA) – The Loisaida Center
  • Nosheen Hossain (Gallatin BA) – WHEDco
  • Xixi Jiang (Gallatin BA) – Right To The City Alliance
  • Maggie Moss (Wagner MUP) – ALIGN
  • Ama Sarpomaa (Gallatin BA) – African Communities Together
  • Mira Silveira (Gallatin BA) – Pratt Center for Community Development
  • Costanza Tremante (Wagner MUP) – Paisaje Transversal
