The Roberts Fellowship Program engages a select group of 12 outstanding SVSU students 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 a variety of small group interactions with leaders in a broad range of academic disciplines, state government and global business. The Fellowship has a strong focus on leadership from a global perspective, as well as on encouraging its participants to pursue more ambitious professional goals than they may previously have considered. At the end of the academic year, Roberts Fellows are immersed for three weeks in Asian culture, travelling to China, Taiwan and Japan. They find their experiences to be life-changing and inspiring as they enter into graduate school as well as a broad range of careers.
Expenses for travel experiences, as well as academic courses, are met by the Saginaw Valley State University Foundation.
