Inaugural SNF Paideia fellows reflect on an inspiring first year

The fellowship program for undergraduates connects their general education and major requirements to public engagement and community building through dialogue across differences.

The first cohort of Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) Paideia Fellows has wrapped up its inaugural year, committed to continuing to develop the knowledge and skills needed for effective, civil dialogue and looking forward to an in-person fall.

The fellowship program is tailored to encourage undergraduate fellows to connect their general education and major requirements to public engagement and community building through dialogue across differences. The fellowship is an offshoot of Penn’s SNF Paideia Program, which launched in 2019 and reimagines the ancient Greek ideal Paideia—or “education of the whole person”—for the 21st century and beyond, with courses focusing on dialogue, wellness, service, and citizenship.
