SOCIAL INNOVATION FELLOWS
This mission-based scholarship program is dedicated to creating social innovators and entrepreneurs who are inspired by Ignatian values – rigor, generosity, gratitude, inclusivity, solidarity, and a desire for the greater good. We challenge students to grow their entrepreneurial mindset, curiosity, and desire to experiment while they actively engage with the community to understand problems citizens face and build sustainable solutions. Students become catalysts for social innovation and entrepreneurship across the JCU campus and around the world.
JCU NEIGHBORHOOD PROJECT
What if each JCU freshman class adopted a Cleveland neighborhood that was struggling to thrive, where the students served and worked for 4 years? John Carroll University students strive to be men and women for and with others through experiential learning opportunities. Many Cleveland neighborhoods face a myriad of problems created by a history of poverty. The JCU Neighborhood Project is an opportunity to focus the time and talents of JCU students, faculty, and staff to address those problems preventing Cleveland residents and business owners from thriving.
