CUP Fellowship for Change in Design 2021

CUP Fellowship for Change in Design 2021

Deadline: 12 April 2021
Open to: emerging designers from historically marginalized communities
Benefits: a stipend in the amount of USD $40,000 and various other benefits


The Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) is a nonprofit organization that uses the power of design and art to increase meaningful civic engagement, in partnership with historically marginalized communities. CUP uses design to make important public policy and social justice issues easier to understand so people impacted by them can more easily navigate and change them.

CUP is now accepting applications for the 2021 CUP Fellowship for Change in Design! The Fellowship is a paid, year-long, full-time, training program designed to promote and support individuals in gaining the skills, contacts, and experience to help them excel in their design careers.

The Fellow works at CUP full-time, collaborating on our community-engaged design projects as part of the CUP team, working as an in-house designer, and participating in mentoring opportunities.

The Fellowship is an initiative to support the development of a pipeline of talented individuals from historically under-represented communities into the design fields, and to dismantle the systemic biases that stand in the way of their advancement as leaders in these fields. The 2021 Fellow will be selected through a competitive, juried process and will work with CUP from July 2021–June 2022.
