Patricelli Center Fellowship and Jewett Center Board Residency Program — Applications due April 13

Applications are now open for two exciting courses that provide a deep dive into the realm of social impact and social entrepreneurship work. Applications are open until 11:59 pm on April 13. Applicants will be notified by 9:00 am on April 18th.

The Patricelli Center Fellowship (CSPL264 and CSPL265) is a year-long, project-based learning opportunity for entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, and changemakers. They are seeking highly-dedicated students who wish to take a deep dive into social impact work. Some students enroll with a specific venture in mind, while others designed a project or join a team after the course begins.
The Jewett Center Board Residency Program (CSPL280 and CSPL281) provides an opportunity for Wes students to learn about the nonprofit sector while serving as non-voting members of a local board of directors. In addition to a weekly lecture on campus, we got to attend board meetings, actively participate in board committees, and complete board-level projects.
