Apply to be an A’Lelia Bundles Community Scholar

The Columbia University Office of Government and Community Affairs is currently accepting applications for the A’Lelia Bundles Community Scholars program.

Applications for the upcoming cohort are due on April 30, 2021.

The program, which is one of the benefits associated with the Community Benefits Agreement, offers independent, community-based scholars from Upper Manhattan access to a suite of Columbia University services and resources at no cost for a three-year period.

Program benefits have included access to all University libraries (including on-line access), program advising, course auditing privileges, dialogue with scholars in a pertinent field of study, and the ability to participate in forums, seminars and other campus activities.

For detailed information, register for the March 17th information session HERE. Columbia University’s¬†website has program highlights including: eligibility, application requirements, program terms, and a fascinating overview of the program’s namesake A’Lelia Bundles, the great-great-granddaughter of Madame C.J. Walker.
