Congratulations to our new UISF and Sean Douglas Fellows!

IMG_4806Please join the Stone Center in welcoming our newest class of UISF and Sean Douglas Fellows for the 2015-2015 school year.

The Sean Douglas Leadership Fellows (SDLF) Program provides an opportunity for undergraduate students interested in gaining practical experience in planning and managing arts, cultural and academic programs to serve as interns at the Stone Center while working closely with the Director.  This year’s Sean Douglas Fellows are: Kimberly Clarida, Jasmine Jennings, and Jerrod Powers.

The Undergraduate International Studies Fellowship (UISF), originally established through the anonymous gift of a UNC alum, is awarded to deserving students who are underrepresented in the ranks of those who travel and study internationally. UISF applicants are required to meet the same requirements as all students who study internationally, but are also asked to make a presentation about their travel to help encourage others to seek international experiences. This year’s UISF were awarded to: Jaslina Paintal, Ashley Robinson, Jenna Sedberry and Marquis Hackett.
