The paid fellowship will be offered to four graduate students from different disciplines to explore various social enterprise models for innovations that are developed by University of Washington researchers.

The projects for the summer 2020 cohort are being developed to benefit disadvantaged populations and improve population health. All innovations are seeking novel ideas for how they can be financially sustainable while at the same time ensuring that the social impact of the work remains as important as any potential revenue generation.

Fellows will each have primary responsibility for one project, but will be also expected to work as a team, with each fellow contributing their disciplinary expertise to all projects. Eligible graduate students from all UW schools or colleges are encouraged to apply.

Applications are due on March 13, 2020.
