Service Learning

The Blum Initiative on Global & Regional Poverty is pleased to announce the call for the Blum Initiative Service Learning Fellowship (BISLF). The BISLF is a funding opportunity for currently enrolled UCR undergraduate and graduate students who would like to pursue a domestic or international immersive volunteer or internship position. BISLF recipients will identify and partner with a non-profit, government agency, or other poverty-related service provider and receive a fellowship stipend of up to $3,200 to subsidize the cost of living during the fellowship. As well, fellows serving outside of Southern California may also be awarded a travel stipend, commensurate with market rates, to cover the cost of their travel to/from the fellowship location.

BISLF affords students the unique opportunity to learn about poverty while serving a community or population in-need. The Blum Initiative aims to encourage the study of poverty throughout the world, across the U.S., and especially within the Inland Empire and Southern California. By poverty, the Blum Initiative is interested in relative and material deprivation, economic insecurity, and a host of related inequalities and disparities.
