The CGVRC Graduate Student Fellowship builds the capacity of graduate students to address gun violence throughout their professional lives. The Fellowship is a 15-week program that brings together student fellows (graduate students from Chicago-based universities) and faculty fellows (professors and public health professionals) to:  

  • Understand the root causes of gun violence and initiatives to address these root causes, from a public health perspective, through an ongoing discourse across the fellowship

  • Learn from a network of leading gun violence scholars, advocates, and stakeholders through presentations and discussions

  • Collaborate on faculty-fellow teams to develop, implement, and disseminate an applied research project related to gun violence

Here are six fellow profiles that describe past fellows and their reflections on gun violence.
