Social Justice Scholars

Students reading together in a semi circle

The Social Justice Institute (SJI) invites CWRU undergraduate first, second, and third year students to apply to the Social Justice Scholars (SJS) reading group. Apply by Friday, May 10.

In Fall 2024, selected participants will receive two books and any subsequent readings, and will receive a $250 award for their full participation over the fall semester. Participants agree to be responsible for reading all of the assigned materials, and must attend ALL five planning and discussion sessions. Students can apply for continuing as a Social Justice Scholar in the Spring semester (with an additional stipend), which will build on the Fall semester learning.

The five sessions will be held during the Community Hour (12:30pm to 2:00pm) on:

  • Friday, September 6
  • Friday, September 20
  • Friday, October 4
  • Friday, October 25
  • Friday, November 15
Applications for Fall 2024 are now open. Apply now!
