Started in 2009 by Union College Assistant Dean Tom McEvoy and Professor of Economics, Hal Fried, The Minerva Fellow program was born.
The Minerva Fellows are a select group of graduating seniors from Union College who are given a scholarship to embark on a nine month journey at a location across the world, one of which is Engeye. The unique project advances graduating seniors’ horizons and pushes the limits of how they can affect change across the globe.
Follow along with our past and current Minerva Fellows’ journey via their blogs written while living in Uganda.
