Individual & Community Development

- Ongoing events organized by the Fellows, focusing on topics related to the program and open to all members of the BC community
- Application Deadline
- October 15
The program is open to all BC undergraduate students in the fall semester of their sophomore year. There is no minimum GPA requirement, yet applicants must demonstrate that they are eligible to study abroad, academically and in terms of disciplinary standing. Students need not be already involved in leadership activities on campus; they will be selected for their potential, as well as for prior experience.
How to apply
Students are required to submit a personal statement, photo and résumé to MLFellow@bc.edu by October 15.
In the personal statement, applicants should address each of the following questions. Limit replies to each question to 200 words.
- Why are you interested in applying to this program?
- What is your current understanding of and belief about social justice and why do you think it is important?
- What unique skills, experiences, interests and/or perspectives would you be able to contribute as a McGillycuddy-Logue Fellow?
Those who qualify will then be invited to participate in an entrance interview. Final decisions will be determined by mid-November, allowing students to adjust their spring semester accordingly, and also give ample time to choose an abroad program that suits their interests and permits them to complete the required service placement.
