Graduate Student Fellows

Graduate Student Fellowships

Graduate students are selected annually to serve as mentors to the undergraduates in the Brady Program.  They oversee the progress of the undergraduates as they work their way through the three years of the program.  Each class of undergraduates is divided into groups of four.  A graduate student is assigned to each group and remains with it for three years.  At frequent meetings of these small groups, graduate fellows provide ongoing support and guidance to undergraduates as they learn about the city of Evanston and its social, economic, and political problems.  The graduate students maintain frequent contact with their four assigned undergraduates when the latter are studying abroad.  And when those undergraduates return to campus, the graduate student mentoring them helps them further refine their ideas about the collaborative community project that will be undertaken in the senior year.
