The Peacock Fellowship


The Peacock Fellowship connects UNC students with the staff and community on the ground in Kibera.

This year long fellowship is available to graduate or undergraduate students and provides an immersive global experience in which fellows complete health-related or outreach projects in collaboration with Carolina for Kibera. The fellowship is comprised of a semester of project development, 2-3 months abroad for implementation, and a semester-long internship upon return.
