Marie & Robert Jackson Fellowship
To empower students with opportunities to serve the common good through community engagement, collective learning, and leadership and professional development.
The Jackson Fellows Story
In 2008, the College of Saint Benedict received an anonymous gift to establish the Marie and Robert Jackson Fellows Program. Students with varying majors, interests, and experience are selected through an application and interview process to be part of a cohort of Jackson Fellows. Each Fellow serves at a community site for the summer. All fellowships involve civic engagement and work devoted to improving community life. The diversity of the site placements and the type of work and leadership required from each Jackson Fellow serves to create a rich, vibrant, and holistic learning environment.
