Roberts-Gilbertson Fellowship Program of Distinction

The Roberts-Gilbertson Fellowship Program engages a select group of approximately 10 outstanding SVSU undergraduates from a wide range of disciplines for an entire academic year in three-hour weekly seminars, a year-long service project of their own creation, and interactions with campus and community leaders, culminating with an international travel experience. Exploring diverse cultures and perspectives is a hallmark of the program. The program has a strong focus on leadership from a global perspective, as well as on encouraging participants to pursue more ambitious professional goals than they might have previously considered. They find their experiences to be life-changing and inspiring as they enter graduate school and a broad range of careers.

Tuition and fees for the weekly seminars and international travel costs are paid for by the Roberts-Gilbertson Fellowship Program through the Saginaw Valley State University Foundation.
