The Graduate Student Research Fellows Program is an initiative of the Center for Social Justice. The program facilitates networking and interdisciplinary collaborations, fosters an interdisciplinary understanding of social justice, supports social justice research by providing a platform for feedback, creates a space where new social justice research projects can be discussed and promoted, and serves as a venue to find partners in research.
The Graduate Student Research Fellow (GSRF) program is a one-year commitment open to graduate students at the University of Oklahoma. Applicants must be a Master's or Ph.D. student at the University of Oklahoma.
Fellows contribute to an environment of creativity, collaboration, critical examination and analysis by:
Acting as guest speakers for classes, student organizations and community organizations. Actively participating in meetings and group discussion. Presenting research at monthly meetings by their 2nd year of involvement in the program. Demonstrating commitment to community engagement. Providing ideas of lectures, meeting topics, etc.
Fellows of the Graduate Student Research Program are required to attend monthly meetings. Fellows also give back to the OU community through working with student groups, classes and departments. Giving back to the community is an important part of the Center's mission to inspire and involve students in social justice issues.
