Frederick Douglass Global Fellowship

About the Fellowship The Frederick Douglass Global Fellowship covers the costs for outstanding students of color to participate in a customized summer study abroad program focused on leadership and intercultural communication skills. Fellows are selected based on their academic achievement, communication skills, and commitment to social justice - qualities representative of the award's namesake, African American social reformer, abolitionist, orator, writer, and international statesman Frederick Douglass.

Ireland's Department of Foreign Affairs has committed to co-sponsoring the 2021 Frederick Douglass Global Fellows to commemorate the 175th anniversary of Frederick Douglass's four-month long tour of Ireland, during which he addressed over forty abolitionist meetings. CIEE's fifth cohort of Fellows will be based in Dublin, and follow in Douglass' footsteps with visits across the island in summer 2021.
