New in 2024: Einaudi Global Scholars
Launching in spring 2024, this competitive fellowship program is open to students from all colleges and majors with a passion for big global questions and speaking across differences. The Global Scholars program provides a toolkit of resources for weighing challenging questions and builds your practical skills in public debates. By the end of the semester, you'll be an active global citizen and champion for social impact.
What You'll Learn
The Global Scholars program creates a space for studying and practicing how individuals and communities can engage about, with, and across difference and disagreement to work toward collective understanding and action on challenging global issues. Our focus will be on skills of discourse, empowering you to thoughtfully address big questions on campus and beyond. You will learn how to:
- Determine the nature of complex global issues.
- Understand crucial issues from multiple perspectives.
- Test your ideas through research.
- Respectfully interact with communities impacted by an issue.
- Responsibly engage in advocacy to create valuable public discourse.
Mentors and Networking
As a Global Scholar, you'll meet and engage with prominent experts and leaders visiting the Einaudi Center, including this years’ speakers at the Lund Critical Debate.
You'll attend participatory workshops led by our Global Public Voices (GPV) faculty fellows—who are focusing this year on freedom of expression—and join their work producing public commentary and global perspectives on free expression. You'll also help plan and contribute to a campus symposium on global free speech with the GPV fellows.
Applications for next year are due September 9, 2024.
