June 22, 2018
The 14 student recipients of the 2018 Columbus Foundation Summer Fellowship.

WGSS students Mason Hickman and Imani Harris have recently been awarded The 2018 Columbus Foundation Summer Fellowships!

Now in its ninth year, The Columbus Foundation Summer Fellowship program annually awards undergraduate students, graduate students, and recent college graduates an opportunity to work with nonprofit organizations in central Ohio and a $6,000 stipend. The foundation aims to strengthen and improve the community through work year-round with donors, organizations, and volunteers.

Mason Hickman, who double majors in WGSS and Political Science, will be working with the Equality Ohio Education Fund to manage and support the organization’s social enterprise. The fund aims to achieve fair treatment and equal opportunity for Ohioans, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, through advocacy and education.

Imani Harris, currently majoring in English and minoring in WGSS, will be working with the King Arts Complex and administering the organization’s Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) youth summer academy this year. The academy allows K-12 students to learn more about multiple disciplines through project-based learning.

Congratulations to you both on this accomplishment!
