The Urban Fellows Program is an interdisciplinary initiative of the Center for the Comparative Study of Metropolitan Growth in the College of Law. Top graduate students are selected from across Georgia State University and Georgia Tech's School of City and Regional Planning to study and discuss issues related to urban growth with top decision makers.
Students in the Urban Fellows Program participate in a speaker series that includes monthly afternoon lectures and brown bag lunches; the speaker series focuses on a variety of topics related to urban and environmental issues. Students also participate in community outreach projects, field trips, and conferences and symposia. All students are required to write a research paper of publishable quality.
Why should you apply to be an Urban Fellow?
The Metro Growth Center accepts applications for new Urban Fellows every spring. Graduate students in good standing from any department at Georgia State University and Georgia Tech's School of City and Regional Planning may apply.
