Becoming an Education Dedicated to Justice and Equity (EDJE) Student Fellow is an excellent opportunity to further your academic, professional and civic development. Through the program, you will develop the essential knowledge and skills to become an active professional in your community, as well as the confidence and commitment to make a difference.
Dominican students with service-learning experience, proven leadership ability, work history with specific organizations and who have declared a Community Action and Social Change minor, can earn scholarships and paid work-study opportunities through the EDJE Student Fellow Program.
Service learning has changed my perspective in that it makes me approach my experiences at Dominican and in the Marin community with intentionality and openness, and as such, has also made me view my career as an occupational therapist in much the same way: with an understanding that every interaction can have a significant impact and every experience can be an opportunity.”
