Funding

The CPGC is committed to supporting students and faculty by providing funds for projects and events related to the mission of the Center.

Haverford students and faculty are welcome to apply, as are Bryn Mawr students majoring at Haverford and working on projects related to their major coursework (unless otherwise specified). Students intending to apply for funding should schedule an appointment with Janice Lion (Domestic Programs) or Chloe Tucker (International Programs).


Faculty Funding

The CPGC supports Haverford faculty members in their efforts to integrate global and local issues into their teaching, research and mentoring. This might take the form of attendance at off-campus conferences, hosting on-campus events, organizing service learning projects in conjunction with students, and the inclusion of elements of social justice into courses.

Summer Internships

The CPGC funds a robust program of domestic and international summer internships. Students can apply to one of our partnership programs for Center-organized internships, or can design their own internship, working independently or hosted by an organization through a number of different internship avenues.

Haverford House

This post-graduate fellowship program engages six outstanding fellows each year to strengthen Haverford College's global citizenship in the Greater Philadelphia region. Fellows work at selected nonprofit host organizations, serve as mentors to Haverford students, and carry out special projects that enliven CPGC’s mission. Discover more about the program and application process.

Conferences/Workshops

The CPGC supports students' attendance at off-campus conferences, workshops, or trainings that engage issues to advance peace and social action. CPGC will fund group trips; however, each student must apply individually.

On-Campus Events

The Center funds events on Haverford’s campus such as talks by academics and activists, performances and workshops. These events should be designed to engage members of the Haverford community in meaningful dialogue on key global issues and social justice.

Service Learning

During fall, winter, and spring breaks or within the academic year, the CPGC supports students pursuing community-based projects with strong educational components. These projects are usually connected to a course or other academic endeavor, and provide a benefit to the host community. CPGC will fund group projects; however, each student must apply individually.

Student Research

The CPGC funds domestic and international student research throughout the academic year, including fall, winter, and spring break. Strong preference is given to projects relating to one’s senior thesis research and/or major. All applicants should consult with a faculty member who can speak to the project and its merit. Please note that we prefer to fund longer research stays or on-going research rather than shorter or one-time visits; decisions are made based on a relative cost-benefit analysis.
