California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) and the Human Sexuality PhD Program are proud to announce that the Arcus Fellowship Program application is open for prospective Fellows. The Arcus Fellowship aims to encourage colleges and universities to improve their campus climates by building the leadership capacity of LGBTQ students.

Each Arcus Fellow, with the support of a home campus mentor (a faculty member, advisor, counselor, or student), will design, implement, and evaluate a project that directly addresses harassment, bullying, discrimination, and social isolation experienced by LGBTQ students – particularly trans students and students of color – on the Arcus Fellow’s home campus.

The Arcus Fellow and home campus mentor will have support from an Arcus Mentor (a PhD student from the CIIS Human Sexuality PhD program) and financial support from the Arcus Foundation. Fellows will also attend the Expanding the Circle, a Summer Institute at CIIS in San Francisco. Expanding the Circle attracts LGBTQ leaders from more than 100 universities and institutes, and creatively explores topics such as student needs, inclusive leadership, and policy and curriculum development.  Arcus Fellows will become part of a growing network of leaders, and will present their project at this conference the following year.

While all LGBTQ-identified students are welcome to apply, priority will be given to students who:
– Are non-cisgendered
– Are from communities of color, and/or
– Attend colleges or universities that have limited LGBTQ resources.

For more information, please visit the Arcus Fellowship homepage or contact Emily McKee, CIIS Human Sexuality Program Coordinator at emckee@ciis.edu or 415.575.3422.
