Francis Bok Human Trafficking Awareness Fellowship

The Global Perspectives Office at UCF will provide an opportunity for an outstanding undergraduate (at least junior level) or graduate student from UCF to serve as a Francis Bok Human Trafficking Awareness Fellow each semester. This fellowship is made possible with support from the Human Trafficking Awareness Program Fund and Mr. David Boone ’75. Those applying for the fellowship the semester before their junior year will be considered “Rising Juniors” and thus eligible to apply.

The selected student will conduct a research project related to human trafficking, under the direction of Global Perspectives Office staff, with the aim of producing a final paper that is worthy of publication. Fellows are provided a research space in a globally oriented environment that encourages educational and professional development. The fellowship aims to enrich the student’s academic credentials, providing an excellent opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge on the global scourge of human trafficking through the student’s independent research.

The Francis Bok Human Trafficking Awareness Fellow will receive $750.00 for the semester. All financial aid rules and regulations apply.* Students aspiring to become Francis Bok Human Trafficking Awareness Fellows should have a minimum GPA of 3.5 and be actively enrolled in courses for the semester in which they are selected as a fellow. A board of reviewers drawn from UCF and the community will evaluate applications and make selections. A one-page cover letter, a 5-10 page writing sample, an unofficial transcript and a resume with two listed references are required.
