Royce Fellowship for Sport and Society at Brown University

The Sport and Society Fellowship recognizes Brown University undergraduates who have a record of excellence in academics and sport, supporting these student-athletes to embark on innovative research or applied projects, exploring the intersection of sport and human rights within a particular context.

Fellows’ areas of research may include health, education, conflict resolution, public policy, disability rights, race, gender or ethnicity. The Fellowship supports reflection and inquiry by inspiring fellows to connect their scholarly work with that of their peers and designated faculty, staff and community leaders. Faculty and Community Advisors will work with the Fellows, including Eli Wolff, '00, a Visiting Fellow in Sport and Development at the
Watson Institute for International Studies.

This initiative was established in 2007 through the generosity of Charles Royce, a 1961 graduate of Brown University and parent of two Brown graduates. Mr. Royce, president of Royce Funds, has served as a University trustee since 1989 and is an active member of several university committees, including director of the Sports Foundation.

Eligibility & Selection Criteria
The Fellowship is open to all student-athletes (varsity, club, intramural). Applicants must be rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors who will be on campus for at least one full academic year following the fellowship.

Recipients will receive financial support to undertake a research, curricular or public service project of their choosing to be carried out over the summer or during the academic year.
Recipients of the Royce Sport and Society Fellowship are also awarded lifetime membership in the Society of Royce Fellows, which supports reflection and inquiry by encouraging members to connect their scholarly work with that of their peers, faculty sponsors and scholars in the field of sport and development.
