Swearer Center programs and fellowships provide students with community engaged, cohort-based experiential learning opportunities. Through programs and fellowships, students link their passion for social justice and community engagement with their academic and career goals. Many Swearer Center programs include financial support. Eligible students also can access support through Off-Campus Federal Work Study. Through BrownEngage, students can explore active program and fellowship communities and apply for community engagement opportunities.
