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.
In Fall of 2014, the Stone Center will celebrate 10 years of residence at the Stone Center building, which was completed in 2004. The 44,500 square foot facility houses seminar rooms, classrooms, a 10,000-volume library, publication suite, art gallery, 400-seat auditorium, a dance studio and office suites.
It provides the space necessary for research that develops and delivers intellectual capital on the African experience, and for programming that engages and promotes scholarship, leadership, and community outreach.
