The Eva Lowe Fellowship for Social Justice
Named after longtime Chinatown community activist Eva Lowe, the Chinese Progressive Association developed the Eva Lowe Fellowship for Social Justice in 2010 to foster the leadership development of a new generation of Asian and Pacific Islander community activists and organizers who are deeply invested in building the power of and improving the lives of the working class Chinese immigrant community.
During ten weeks of intensive training, ground work and reflection, Eva Lowe Fellows will learn about and support Chinese immigrant struggles in San Francisco, work to connect the larger API Movement across the country and build lasting relationships with peers, mentors and community members.
All placements for the program will be in San Francisco, California between June and August 2014. Scholarships ranging from $500 - $2000 are available but students are also encouraged to seek additional and alternative funding sources (include campus work-study programs, scholarships and stipends). All other costs will the responsibility of each Fellow.
The Eva Lowe Fellowship is a full-time (40+ hour per week) intensive opportunity. The bulk of an Eva Lowe Fellow's responsibility will be to engage in community outreach, education and organizing around social justice issues in San Francisco. Each fellow will be expected to also work on 2 to 3 projects over the course of the summer. Learn more about what the program looks like here .
