The Lab Student Fellowship aims to support the creativity of students working at the intersection of politics and performance. It is a space for discussion, workshopping, and collaboration among students who feel an affinity for the Lab’s mission of humanizing global politics. Simultaneously, it connects students to The Lab’s work in an ongoing and meaningful way.

The centerpiece of the program is a creative project of the fellow’s choosing. In its first iteration, the program culminated in an online student festival for performance and politics: VERGE. Additionally, students are paired with a Global Lab Fellow to receive mentorship. 

The Fellowship was launched in October of 2020 by Alyssa Kardos and Renny Simone, two student members of The Lab team. Recently, it was featured in a news article published on the SFS website.
