The Marielle Franco Fellowship Fund


Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) Latin American Studies Program (LASP) is delighted to announce the establishment of a newly-endowed fellowship fund.  The work of Brazilian politician, feminist, and human rights activist Marielle Franco, carries on in a memorial fellowship, awarded on an annual basis, to support underrepresented students and/or students committed to advancing social justice, equality, and broader political representation.


Eligibility criteria:  An incoming MA graduate student with a Latin American Studies concentration will be selected for this inaugural fellowship.  For this award, the program will select a candidate who demonstrates commitment to advancing social justice, equality and broader political representation.  All MA applicants to SAIS, selecting the LASP concentration, will be considered for this fellowship.  The fellowship is renewable for year two as long as the recipient maintains a cumulative GPA of 3.4.
