Students who are entering their sophomore, junior or senior year are eligible to apply for the prestigious Jane Addams Service Fellowship Program. Through the fellowship, students initiate programs on campus that raise awareness about social and political issues. In addition, Jane Addams Service Fellows typically work in meaningful roles with nonprofit agencies that have been identified as Rockford University community partners. There is an application process for Jane Addams Service Fellows and selection is made on a competitive basis. Any full-time student is eligible to apply.
"Jane Addams Fellowship not only offers an opportunity to organize civic engagement events on campus, but it also provides fellows with needed resources to help those who need help at a local, national and an international level. The Jane Addams Center provides its fellows with necessary tools and experience to lead them to make a difference in people’s lives. If you have a passion for social justice and you want to make a real difference in the world, Jane Addams Center is the perfect place. It is our belief that nothing shrivels the meaning of human life like the ignorance of great opportunities for the care of the underprivileged.” —Jane Addams Fellow
